We acknowledge that we are on stolen land of the Anishnabek, Huad-neh-show-nay, Mississaugas peoples bound by the Dish with One Spoon treaty.

This treaty was originally between the Anishnabek, Haudenosaunee, and Mississaugas, and bound communities to share the territory and protect the land. The land is also treaty 16 territory, a treaty signed in 1815.

We and all non-Indigenous were invited into the treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect. We recognize the deep, systemic and ongoing violence faced by Indigenous peoples across Simcoe County and our country and are committed to the indigenization of spaces.
