The Delaware Nation welcomes you to visit their community of Moraviantown, one of the oldest settlements in SW Ontario. Whether you are a history buff, a nature lover, collector of Native arts and crafts or yearn to dance in a pow wow, this First Nations community has something for you.

Labour Day weekend, Moraviantown hosts visitors from across the globe to celebrate life, family and the heartbeat of Mother Earth during the annual Delaware Nation Pow Wow. You will not only see Indigenous dancers and drummers in action, but you will have the opportunity to join in. Don’t forget to try some fry bread!

The Weelateéxung Natural Trail is a hot spot for local hikers, birders and nature lovers. Weelateéxung means “the good path”, and you’ll understand why as you walk the trail that hugs the southern shore of the Thames River. Follow the signs to help you find the trail and discover special plants and animals that have special significance to the Delaware People.
