This gallery honours the First Peoples who lived, traded and created a flint-knapping industry on this site. Mewinzha is a native word meaning "a long time ago". This gallery features tools and weapons dating back 11,000 years as well as contemporary Native artwork.

The Buffalo-Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority in partnership with the Town of Fort Erie, Fort Erie Museum Services and the Fort Erie Native Friendship Centre have produced this gallery as the centrepiece of the lobby of the new Peace Bridge Administration Building
