I acknowledge that the land I live and work on has been the site of human activity for thousands of years. Tkaronto (coming form the Kanien’kéha word, translating to "where the trees stand in water") is the traditional territories of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. I also acknowledge that Tkaronto is part of the Dish With One Spoon wampum belt covenant bound between the Anishnabeg, Mississaugas of the Credit and Haudenosaunee people. As I understand it, this covenant invites all people living on this land to share the land and protect the land, as we are all eating out of one dish with one spoon. As a settler and descendant of colonizers I commit to working to ending the years of white supremacy and colonization on this land, and all over this world.
