Celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day at Thousand Islands National Park's visitor centre. Discover more about Canada's Indigenous cultures on the dazzling shores of the St. Lawrence River in the Thousand Islands, a traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee people. Learn about what the Thousand Islands means from a First Nations perspective in Voices of Akwesasne, a series of video vignettes playing at the visitor centre and try your hand at Canada’s national summer sport, lacrosse. The Mohawk Thanksgiving Address has been commemorated in a rock carving at Mallorytown Landing’s scenic lookout. Each image in the carving is also carved into rocks scattered around the grounds. See if you can find them all!
