Picturing the Americas Walking Tour
Join us for a walk through Picturing the Americas and a three hour walking tour of pre-contact and historical landmarks near the AGO illustrating the Indigenous presence in Toronto. In collaboration with First Story Toronto, we will discover the cultural geography and indigenous history of this land.
Since 1995, First Story Toronto, (formerly The Toronto Native Community History Project), within the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto, has researched and preserved the Aboriginal history of Toronto with the goal of building awareness of and pride in the long Aboriginal presence and contributions to the city. First Story Toronto shares this history through a variety of initiatives such as First Story Tours Toronto (formerly The Great 'Indian' Bus Tour of Toronto), walking tours of places in the city and a smartphone app, making accessible a growing archive of historical materials about Toronto’s Aboriginal community.
