June 24 was a day of both reaching out and reconciliation for Niagara Regional Chair Jim Bradley as he met with Chief Stacey LaForme of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
During their meeting, Bradley and LaForme discussed opportunities to raise awareness of First Nation treaty rights, the presence of Indigenous history and culture throughout Niagara, as well as prospective partnerships for new economic development initiatives.
In a release, it said that Regional staff had been “working closely with members of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and other urban Indigenous communities, to ensure Indigenous interests are reflected in broad Regional policies.”
The Region has said that by “working together with all First Nations and Indigenous communities, Niagara can help celebrate Indigenous culture, history, entrepreneurship, expertise, and achievements.”
