Land Acknowledgment

It is important to understand the longstanding history that has brought us to reside on this land known as Tkaronto and understand our place within its history. 

This land we reside on carries with it imprints of its past. We as the students of Toronto Metropolitan university acknowledge this past and stand in solidarity with indigenous peoples and the deep wounds they carry. The present and future stewardship of this land, we hope will be one of equal opportunity, equal bounty and respect. 

Tkaronto is in the dish with one spoon territory. The dish with one spoon territory is a treaty between the anishinaabe, mississaugas and haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent indigenous nations and peoples. Europeans and all newcomers have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.

As we work to heal our communities, in shared responsibility, we encourage our viewers to donate to and support grassroots indigenous organizations to continue this advocacy.
