We respectfully acknowledge that words and ideas have been shared on this land for thousands of years. The land on which we operate has been occupied by the Anishinabeg, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. It is part of the Dish with One Spoon territory, and is still home to many Indigenous people. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We thank those who have cared for the land and are sharing it with us. We are grateful to be here, connecting with others in the celebration of stories.
