Walpole Island - June 8, 2016
Part of what we support are visits to school communities.
Today we met on Walpole Island with the Walpole Island's grade 7 and kindergarten classes. They came to a local park with their band elders to commemorate the signing of a treaty with the representatives of King George the III, over 200 years ago.
In addition to Walpole Island, the reserve includes Squirrel, St. Anne, Seaway, Bassett, and Potawatomi islands. It is unceded territory and is inhabited by the Ojibwe, Potawatomi, and Odawa peoples of the Walpole Island First Nation, who call it Bkejwanong, meaning "where the waters divide.

Three years ago Mike Chavousite and the local chamber of commerce decided to sponsor an 1812 Historical Weekend. We were invited in 2014 and have gone back ever since. This year a contingent of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment - Bolger Company - joined us and Image result for voltigeurs.
Les Voltigeurs de Québec to make up the British side. Forsythe’s Rifles, The Grenville Militia and friends made up the US Forces. The general public loved the displays and the skirmishes. The highlight of the battles was sailing on the Faire Jean and firing as we landed and moved the American Forces back. This happened Saturday night and the Americans took the field back on Sunday!
