Niagara Parks, in co-operation with the Landscape of Nations 360 project, will be hosting three virtual talks for Indigenous Month throughout June.

Speakers include Indigenous leaders, historians and artists.

The talks cover Indigenous contributions to the War of 1812 and the cultural significance of the strawberry moon.

The last talk will focus on the battle of Chippewa, the longest and bloodiest battle of the War of 1812. It will revolve around Indigenous contributions to the battle and lasting effects on the First Nations Haudenosaunee, who lived on the Niagara River.

The talks are scheduled for June 10, 17 and 24 at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $15 per event or $35 for access to all three.
