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.
