Land Acknowledgement

Our activities take place on the unceded traditional land of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples. This land is also home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. We ask you to join us in acknowledging these communities, their present and past elders, and future generations. This acknowledgment is the first step to our commitment to forming a continuous, collaborative relationship with Indigenous people. One of the ways we do this is to strive to form partnerships with Indigenous Violence-Against-Women shelters to support the children living there. Another of the ways we do this is to encourage Indigenous artists to become guest artists of our workshops. We know that forming connections will lead to a greater understanding and respect of the culture and art of Indigenous people.
