Treaty Lands and Territory Recognition Statements

The following territory recognition statements have been developed to assist organizations in the acknowledgement of the Treaty lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, direct descendants of the Mississaugas of the Credit. These statements may be used by organizations located within the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit without written consent. Please note we are officially known as the Mississaugas of the Credit NOT Mississaugas of the New Credit, to ourselves and the Government of Canada. The word “New” in New Credit was adopted by the band council in 1847 shortly after the move from the Credit River to its present-day location near Hagersville.
