Although this is a virtual event, we are not virtual people, and we wish to acknowledge the lands on which we are privileged to host this exhibition and send our thanks to the people who have cared for these lands since time immemorial.
Our student cohort lives and studies on Indigenous lands across Turtle Island from coast to coast. Most of us live on or around the traditional lands of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit River. On the west coast, we are on the territories of the Lək̓ʷəŋən People, known today as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, and the territories of the W̱SÁNEĆ People. And on the east coast, we are on the territories of the Massachusett Tribe.
