ArtReach wishes you a happy National Indigenous People's Day!
We acknowledge that the land ArtReach lives and works on is the traditional territory of many nations, including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit. You can learn about Treaty 13 here.
Why do we do a land acknowledgement?
Engaging in a land acknowledgement gives time for reflection and demonstrates recognition and honouring of Indigenous lands, treaties, and peoples, people who have lived on this land for over 10,000 years. It involves humbly thinking about what happened in the past and what changes we can make going forward in order to further the reconciliation process. It’s also a reminder that we are all accountable to these relationships. Learn more about land acknowledgements here.
