Debwewin - The Oakville Truth Project

Debwewin - The Oakville Truth Project

‘Debwewin’ refers to one of the Anishinabek seven grandfathers teaching for “truth.”

The Debwewin project raises questions about Oakville’s Truth, using many methods to educate through videos, cultural mapping, art, story-telling, place-making amongst others. The project is a partnership between the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Oakville Community Foundation to further our shared understanding of Oakville’s Indigenous past and support local Truth & Reconciliation.

Know History is honoured to support the Debwewin Advisory Council and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation in sharing and promoting the Indigenous history of Oakville and specifically the history of Treaties 14 and 22. You can learn more about Debwewin here.
