Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation with Darin Wybenga
Truth and reconciliation begins with an openness to learning Canadian history. To this end, Darin Wybenga, Traditional Knowledge and Land Use Coordinator of Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, will provide a brief overview of the history of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and treaties relevant to the land on which Brampton is located.
When Mississaugas of the Credit ancestors arrived in Southern Ontario in the late 17th century, they found themselves stewards of approximately 4 million acres of land at the western end of Lake Ontario. The erosion of their land base, a declining population, and the continual encroachment of settlers threatened the very existence of the people, yet the Mississaugas of the Credit remain on their lands today and are proud of their resilience.
