LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
This event is being held on indigenous territory and we acknowledge the Dish With One Spoon Wampum treaty; an early Indigenous treaty to peaceably share the resources of the Great Lakes region. We acknowledge that we are in the lands of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee, Petun, Seneca and Huron-Weandat and most recently the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. The word “Toronto” itself, originates from the Kanienke’haka word “Tkaronto” which translates to, “the place in the water where the trees are standing”. The reference is said to come from Haudenosaunee and Huron-Wendat fishers posting stakes for fishing weirs in the narrows of the river systems, many of which are now mostly paved over with concrete. We acknowledge that we are settlers on this land.
