Crash course on Bread and Cheese
Bread and cheese are delicious — but did you know it’s also a day?!

Bread and Cheese. More than just two of Falen and Leah's favourite foods. Did you know it's also a day? In Falen's community of Six Nations, every Victoria Day weekend people from the community get in line and walk through the local arena to get a big squishy slice of bread and a giant hunk of orange cheese. Delicious? Yes. But why?
