National Indigenous
Peoples Day

Date: June 21, 2021
Location: Six Nations Tourism Building

SNGRDC will be supporting our community through a local initiative supplying local artisan gifts to the community. In the past, this day has been celebrated with public gatherings and festivities. Due to the uncertainty we face through Covid-19, SNGRDC will be gifting locally sourced stained glass feathers, an initiative which aligns with Haudenosaunee culture and values. We are excited to support a local artisan and bring a piece of culture to the community during these trying times.

Six Nations
Winter Care Packages 

Date: November 2021
Time: 9am-4pm Delivery Drop Off
Location: Various Community Organizations

Six Nations has various organizations that work to support the Six Nations Community such as the Elders Lodge, Six Nations Youth Centre, and the Family Assault Centre. Community Members using these locations can often feel isolated and lonely during the holidays. SNGRDC is looking to spread the holiday cheer and support our elders who haven’t been able to visit with friends and/or family over the past year due to the ongoing pandemic by giving away care packages. Last year, SNGRDC purchased 4 iPads and covers for the Iroquois Lodge and 4 iPads and covers Ganohkwasra Shelter Program giving means for people to stay connected with family and friends during isolation and lockdown.
