We would like to acknowledge this land on which the Music Gallery operates. It has been a site of human activity for 15,000 years. This land is the territory of the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Anishinabek Nation and the Mississaugas of the Credit. The territory is the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.
Today, the meeting place of Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and around the world. As a part of this community, and as individuals, it is up to us to recognize our privileges in this space, and educate ourself further along the way.
