Phil Monture gives talk at the Ken Seiling Waterloo Region Museum in honour of National Indigenous Peoples’ Day

WATERLOO REGION: In anticipation of National Indigenous Peoples’ Day, which falls on June 21 each year, the Ken Seiling Waterloo Region Museum is pleased to announce that Phil Monture, from Six Nations of the Grand River, is giving a talk called Understanding our Region and the Territorial Acknowledgement. The talk takes place at the Ken Seiling Waterloo Museum on Wednesday, June 19 from 7 to 9 p.m. and the event is free to this event.

“Phil will tell the story of his community and the Haldimand Proclamation (Treaty) of 1784. The treaty covers lands for six miles on each side of the Grand River from Lake Erie to its source,” said Adèle Hempel, Manager/Curator of Region of Waterloo Museums.

Monture, who has been researching this history for almost 40 years, will provide a historical overview of various land transactions and will discuss current Six Nations’ claims in Canada. The knowledge that he will share will strengthen our understanding of the territory that we live on here in Waterloo Region and increase our capacity to make connections between treaties and local geography and history.

Note that seating is limited. To attend please RSVP at 519-748-1914 or via email to by June 14, 2019.

The Ken Seiling Waterloo Region Museum is located at 10 Huron Road, in Kitchener, Ontario. For more information visit or call
