CHECK OUT OUR NEW LOOK!
Our new brand uniquely reflects the attributes of the Western Corridor. There were no flashy battles in this Region, rather ours is a tale of rural folks defending their families and homes against the invading Americans. This Region had all the transport routes, on land and rivers, to get the militia men, Native Warriors, civilians and supplies from York to Amherstburg. It is the “Pathways to Peace”.
The First Nation symbolism of the Wampum Belt is represented within the black “Trail”. The Claus Wampum Belt was presented by Superintendent-General of Indian Affairs William Claus on behalf of Prince Regent George IV, to the Six Nations and their Allies, with the promise that no one would interfere in their customs and territories ever again, and they would never be called upon again in war. This Belt was sold to a collector in the mid-1800’s and disappeared in to a museum collection. It has recently been found and is now part of the Smithsonian Institute’s Native American Collection, the process of Repatriation of the Belt back to the Six Nations of the Grand River has begun, and will hopefully be back home for the Bicentennial of its creation in 2015.
