McMaster University recognizes that the University and surrounding Hamilton area, including their nature spaces, are situated on traditional territories shared between the Haudenosaunee confederacy and Anishnaabe nations. These lands are protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum belt. The wampum uses the symbolism of a dish to represent the territory, and one spoon to represent that the people are to share the resources of the land and only take what they need.

Westfield Heritage Village

Hamilton Conservation Authority

Step back into time and experience pioneer life at Westfield. Spread over 130 hectares Westfield is a re-enactment of days gone by. Period actors live and work in town and allow visitors to join the community with many hands-on activities. The town has a stunning collection of over 35 historical buildings and brilliantly projects the spirit of early Canadian culture in Southern Ontario.
