This public memorial – created in 2015 by Canadian artist and landscape architect Tom Ridout – is located at Queenston Heights Park, Niagara on the Lake, Ontario, Canada.
The artist’s vision was to create an immersive memorial and public art installation honouring the Six Nations warriors who turned the tide on the Battle of Queenston Heights, during the War of 1812. It also symbolises the position of the First Nations people at the core of Canadian history – and national affairs today.
HGH worked closely with the artist, and sourced and supplied large amounts of granite in different colourways for different elements of the project. These include the Turtle pathway focal point, the bases for the figures of Mohawk chiefs John Grant and John Norton; the granite boulders for the memorial plaques – and all of the granite for the evocative Two Row Wampum Treaty walkway.
