Territorial Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that Camp NeeKauNis is situated on the ancestral lands of the Wendat and Anishnaabeg and, more recently, Haudenosaunee peoples, in Upper Canada treaties territory that has seen thousands of years of rich Indigenous history and is home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island today. We honour the covenants of the Dish with One Spoon and Two Row Wampum Belts. As we gather, we remind ourselves to respect and nurture our sacred relationship to this land as well as to its First Peoples both past and present.
