The company of A Perfect Bowl Of Pho would like to acknowledge that this performance is taking place on the traditional territory of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples and land which is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
We also want to acknowledge that while doing a land acknowledgment is a meaningful gesture in the process of reconciliation, this gesture often feels empty and somewhat performative at times, especially in the very community that we love and create for. With this message, we hope to invite and encourage all present today to consider or reconsider how we all can practice reconciliation in our day-to-day life and that, ultimately, action speaks louder than words.
