We recognize the complexity and privilege of gathering online by sharing a digital land acknowledgment written by Adrienne Wong:
Since our activities are shared digitally to the internet, let us take a moment to acknowledge the legacy of colonization embedded within the technologies, structures and ways of thinking we use every day. We are using equipment and high-speed internet not readily available in many Indigenous and marginalized communities. We invite you to join in acknowledging our shared responsibility to make good of this time, and for each of us to consider our roles in reconciliation, decolonization, and allyship.
We acknowledge the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, the Attiwonderonk, and Anishinabewaki and the Haudenosaunee.
