Tradition Keepers from Wendake, Kansas,  Oklahoma and the Seneca Cayuga Nation (Oklahoma), meet in Ontario to repatriate our Ancestors removed from their original resting places.
 
 
The Ancestors, Rest Assured
September 13, 2013 marked an incredible day in the history of the Confederacy as 1,760 Ancestors’ remains were reinterred in Kleinberg, Ontario. Members from the four Confederacy Nations met in love and solidarity to convey the remains to the Ossuary located on Ontario Heritage Trust land. La Nation Huronne ~ Wendat hosted Faith Keepers and many guests on the day. A Conference was held the day before at Hart House, on the University of Toronto Campus with several noteworthy speakers. Images from the conference are available in the Gallery Section of the Website.
