Join Historian Matthew Wilkinson for this episode of Ask A Historian.
This week, Matthew answers the most frequent questions we receive from the community about the stories of the Mississaugas and the history of Residential Schools, the Credit Mission, and the infamous Jones Brothers.
Matthew also provides some in-depth resources to support you in your research and exploration of Indigenous history and the connections to Mississauga.
Heritage Mississauga is the source for all things heritage in Mississauga and have offered a discount on resources to viewers of the episode as well as providing a complimentary copy of “Mississauga: The First 10,000” to the first followers to email “truth and reconciliation” or comment “truth and reconciliation” on the video on our YouTube channel or on our social media channels.
We invite you to continue to send in your questions about historic people, places, and events in Mississauga to [email protected] and we may feature your question on an upcoming episode.
#ApartTogether we continue to explore pathways to truth and reconciliation.
You are invited to email us questions you have about Mississauga and we encourage you to send a short (less than 1 minute) MP4 video of your question, which we may feature in one of our “Ask a Historian” videos.
Any questions not featured in our videos will receive a written response from Matthew.
We would also love to feature questions from young Mississauga residents who are curious about their city and will feature a dedicated video to these inquisitive kids.
Send your questions to us at: [email protected]
