I acknowledge that the land I live, create, and operate business on is the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, Haudenosaunee and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. I also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by treaty 13.
This territory is the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas, and Haudenosaunee that bound them to share the territory and protect the land. Subsequent Indigenous Nations and peoples, settlers and all newcomers, have been invited into this treaty in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect.
I recognize that truth and reconciliation is a continuous process and while this land acknowledgement is a crucial step, settlers like myself have much more work to do. I am committed to building positive relationships with Indigenous peoples, the wider community, and the environment.
