Territorial Acknowledgement

We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is situated upon traditional territories of the Erie, Neutral, Huron – Wyandot, the Haudenosaunee (ho-den-oh-sho-nee), and later the Mississauga of the Credit First Nations. The territory is mutually covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Ojibway and other allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today, this remains the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work in their community, and to share and respect Mother Earth.
