Donna Powless called us together for a THPS volunteer appreciation picnic at Bear Mound. It has been a while since THPS had a gathering so it was good to see everyone and catch up. As a group we are all still committed to protecting sacred sites in High Park and elsewhere in Toronto. We will be attending High Park Citizen’s Council meetings again and producing a pamphlet for High Park visitors on Indigenous History.
We feasted on cornbread and fruit salad. Marlene Bluebird Stickings and Joce Tremblay brought Ojibway tobacco plants seeded and grown at the Stop’s urban agriculture program to gift to THPS members, as well as to plant around Bear and Serpent Mound.
