The Grand Ceremony of Sagabone
June 3rd - Jardin botanique
Free event, admission to the Botanical Garden with fee.
Montréal has every reason to be proud of playing a pivotal role in the oldest peace treaty signed with the First Nations of North America in 1701. This June 3, the Grand Ceremony of Sagabone gives people a chance to celebrate the alliance forged between our Montréal ancestors and representatives from 40 First Nations. This remarkable meeting, held with the Calumet of the Great Peace of 1701, will unite peace pipe carriers from many nations, representatives of major religions, dignitaries and the public. Come celebrate the joy of living together in harmony!

Sagabone is the baby beaver, whose birth signals the arrival of summer. It symbolizes renewal, and persevering through difficult times. The Sagabone ceremony is a highlight moment of the year, during which we thank Mother Earth for coming back to life.

Let’s work together to make Montréal a city of reconciliation and living peacefully together for another 375 years at least.
