Land acknowledgement

Thank you for joining us on the digital platform to see our show! Before we begin, we want to acknowledge the lands and waterways that we are calling in from. The creation process for this work was done predominantly on Zoom which allowed for us to collaborate from across Turtle Island.

Tanya LeBlanc is calling in from Toronto, Ontario, located on the land long shared by the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Haudenosaunee, the Ojibway, and the Huron Wendat in the Dish With One Spoon agreement. Irena Huljak is calling in from the Ottawa-Gatineau area, which is located on the unceded traditional territory of the Algonquin Anishinabeg. When we acknowledge the Indigenous people of this land, we must also acknowledge that colonization is not simply a thing of the past, but that colonial oppressions are carried out every day. As settlers on this land we must constantly work alongside First Nations, Metis, and Inuit people to overcome the lasting effects of colonialism in Canada and to create a fair and equitable nation for all people.
