     After more than two hundred years the significant sacrifices and contributions made by First Nations during the War of 1812 will be permanently recognized. Landscape of Nations: The Six Nations and Native Allies Commemorative Memorial, a public artwork of deep meaning, exquisite beauty, and power was unveiled on the historic battlefield in Queenston Heights Park .  The dedication ceremony included the unveiling of bronze sculptures of Native leaders John Norton and John Brant and eight medallions featured on the Queenston limestone walls forming the centre memory circle, the poignant "Bundling of Seven Arrows" ceremony, and the metaphorical burial of weapons of war under a majestic white pine, the Tree of Peace.
