People lined up at the midway and entered the Gaylord Powless Arena for Bread and Cheese

2015 Celebration of Bread and Cheese

05/18/15 - Those who came out enjoyed the parade of floats and the midway. At noon, many people lined up for the Annual Tradition of receiving Bread and Cheese. This event has become a day for family and friends to gather and share the events of the day.

Queen Victoria established a tradition of providing annual gifts to Six Nations community members in honour of their allegiance during the War of 1812. In 1924, the first elected council revived the tradition with gifts of bread and cheese.

The popular annual holiday is a part of Community Awareness Week. From May 13th to May 26th, Six Nations Council Departments, community organizations and businesses showcase their programs, services and products.
