Indigenous Trails in Ottawa-Gatineau Seminar Summary

On Wednesday February 17, 2021 Dr. Peter Stockdale and Max Finkelstein gave a highly informative seminar about indigenous trails in the Ottawa-Gatineau and surrounding areas.

They provided information on a number of trails, especially portage trails. Even more interesting was the information that they provided on the history of the trips, the people who used them, and the reasons that they were created.

Currently, Stockdale is working with others, including indigenous peoples, municipal organizations and others to research portage trails, find ways to mark them and publicise them and their history.

Max and Peter would like to see a number of different teams of volunteers and organizations to undertake different aspects of the project.

People or organizations who would like to volunteer to help with the project or provide pertinent information should contact Peter Stockdale @ 613-852-4527 or Max Finkelstein @ 613-729-4004.
