  • This research project aims to explore Haudenosaunee knowledge of alliance relationships that were originally sanctioned through the 1613 Two Row Wampum, the Covenant Chain of Friendship and the Six Nation's Haldimand Tract Treaty of 1784, and that continue to be relevant in the present-day relationships between the Haudenosaunee and non-Indigenous people. The Two Row Canoe Paddle on the Grand River is a community-driven initiative that includes both Six Nations/Indigenous and non-Indigenous learning of the history of Six Nations and Haudenosaunee culture. The focus of the learning is on reconciliation, alliance building, bringing healing to the long legacy of historical traumas to which Six Nations and Indigenous communities have endured and to building respectful relationships.
