Indigenous Histories Research Project Event

Our understanding of Markham’s history has been told predominantly by non-Indigenous peoples, and in many cases, has been limited to the period following the arrival of European settlers, There is a wealth of history before that time.  It’s time to learn about the stories and histories of the Indigenous peoples in the area now known as Markham.

Markham Museum has partnered with First Peoples Group, an Indigenous-owned and Indigenous-led consulting firm to lead discussions with various Indigenous communities.

We invite all self-identified Indigenous people and allies living in Markham to attend the information session on April 25 at Markham Museum.  You will learn more about the project, as well as, have your voices heard.

Please register if you plan to attend.

Remembering Tokyo 1964

A glimpse at Markham’s Olympic memories

 

 

July 2021 – Local Team Canada athletes were ready to take on Tokyo in the 2020 Olympic Games.  The community was ready to show support as the athletes took the world stage.

Many got into the Olympic spirit and felt the hometown pride when they tuned in to Remembering Tokyo 1964.  This was an intimate conversation with Markham Olympic Silver Medalist Bill Crothers (Tokyo 1964) and Order of Canada Journalist and news anchor Lloyd Robertson whose first overseas assignment was the Tokyo 1964 Olympic Games.
