Indigenous Walks: A Look at Lansdowne Park



Description

Aberdeen

Indigenous Walks hosts many walks in Ottawa and this year for Jane's Walk we're looking forward to taking walkers through Lansdowne Park to explore social, political, and cultural issues through monuments, landscape, and architecture. Find out what traditional plants grow in the area, learn about the two contemporary Indigenous teaching circles that use this space, and listen to traditional stories with some of our fabulous spot talkers. We're guaranteed to find some surprises along the way too! Hope you can come and walk the moccs with #IndigenousWalks!
