PSolidarity Day Festivites at Chiefswood Park

Celebrating A Day of National Aboriginal Solidarity

06/21/14 Each year June 21st Six Nations of the Grand River celebrates what is fast becoming a signature event complete with Family, Food, Music and Fun a.k.a. Solidarity Day. This day to get together with family and friends to visit with one another is steadily growing bigger each year and even has a feel similar to another signature event on Six Nations which is Bread and Cheese.

"Solidarity Day" is a day for all First Nations country-wide to stand and celebrate and show pride as one. Six Nations Elected Council plans the Community Potluck with a concert bill full of Six Nations performers, featuring rock, country, metal which is a little something to suit all tastes. Grand River Enterprises once again donated a Midway complete with free Candy Apples and Candy Floss for everyone. Caramel Corn was also free for all to enjoy.

"National Aboriginal Day" was declared by the Governor General of Canada, on June 13, 1996, as this is the 18th Year celebration on Six Nations of the Grand River. Planning is already in the works for next year as discussions are focusing on presenting a completely redesigned menu for next year.

Crowd estimates for this years Celebrations numbered in the thousands.

Here is a thank you letter from the 2014 Solidarity Day Committee:
