Special Thanks to our partners and organizers Chris and Trevor from HauntingLIVE Podcast and

David from The Healing of the Seven Generations organization. 

Please send an email to Manager of Education and Programs at groups@stratfordperthmuseum.ca to book a space or more information.

In order to register please provide the following information below to our Manager of Education & Programs at groups@stratfordperthmuseum.ca

Name  –  Business Name  –   Whether or not you have a tent  –   A phone number to reach you  –  What you sell – and finally a written declaration of trust regarding your Indigenous heritage and/or commitment to the Truth & Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action.

Photos and media information is also encouraged so we can help advertise your business.

The event is free of charge for both vendor and visitor. We just ask those who attend to consider that this is a Truth & Reconciliation project focused on advocating for local business owners and artists with an indigenous heritage. First rights of registration and refusal will be granted to those with an indigenous heritage. If there are vacancies available, admittance will also be afforded to local artisans, entrepreneurs, and institutions who do not have an Indigenous Heritage, but instead practice the pillars of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission Report Calls to Action and attend in the spirit of cultural celebration and wītaskīwin or coming together. Thank you for your understanding and support of this initiative.

Please be mindful and respectful of the following…

“Indigenous Identity Fraud robs indigenous people of true reconciliation and participation across all economies.  This…. is for anyone committed to True Reconciliation and honouring Indigenous-led relationships within our nations.”
