Posted July 14, 2022

Canada’s National History Society was honoured to present the 14th Canada’s History Forum and to bring together educators, Indigenous leaders, researchers, and community members for a conversation about truth and reconciliation. Featuring award-winning educators and researchers from across Canada, this event highlighted community-based projects that exemplify meaningful and tangible acts of reconciliation.

This presentation by Nathan Tidridge was part of the 14th Canada's History Forum, “Called to Act: Truth, Reconciliation, and Collaboration,” on June 4, 2022.

Governor General's History Awards Winner Nathan Tidridge, in partnership with the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, established the Souharissen Natural Area in Waterdown, Ontario. This 55-acre educational and cultural space continues to evolve as an outdoor classroom and inspiration for numerous curriculum-based projects. Nathan is currently leading a collaborative project to mark the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II and honour the Treaty relationship with the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation by creating a Treaty forest and related programming.
