The John Brant Award was inspired by Robert Land Academy's five values - Loyalty, Labour, Courage, Commitment, and Honour. The award recognizes a community leader who exemplifies these values and lives an exemplary life. The award is named after John Brant. A respected Mohawk leader who fought in the Battle of Queenston Heights during the War of 1812, and the first Native American Member of Parliament in Upper Canada, Brant, like his father Joseph, demonstrated these values in how he lived his life.
