We live on the traditional territories of many nations including the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, the Lunaapeew, the Wendat and the Mississauga. We acknowledge the inherent and treaty rights of the Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island including the many diverse First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples who live here now. We commit to the teachings of the Two Row Wampum and the One Dish One Spoon Wampum; and our duty to reconcile, learn more and create safe spaces for Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspectives to meet and discuss the issues that matter to everyone.
Many Indigenous Nations call the Carolinian Zone home, and have long historic treaties and ties to this land. The First Nations that call southwestern Ontario home include; Aamjiwnaang First Nation, Bkejwanong Walpole Island First Nation, Caldwell First Nation, Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, The Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation, Munsee Delaware Nation, Eelünaapéewi Lahkéewiit (Delaware Nation at Moraviantown), the Mississauga of the Credit, Six Nations and Oneida Nation of the Thames.
