We honour acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, the Haudenosaunee, the Huron-Wendat, and the Missaugaus of the New Credit First Nation. These nations have cared for this land from time immemorial and it remains home to many First Nations, Inuit, and Métis, including urban and non-status Indigenous peoples. This land is subject to the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant - an agreement to peaceably share and care for this land.
As guests on this territory, we understand our role in a colonial history and the responsibilities that come with living and working on stolen land. We acknowledge that there is much we do not know and commit ourselves to the ongoing work of listening, learning and decolonizing.
