Montreal Land Acknowledgement

Reading of the Montreal Land Acknowledgement

 

As many of us are settlers, immigrants, or descendants of those forcefully brought to this land, it is our collective responsibility to pay respect and recognize that this land is the traditional territory of the Mohawk, and Algonquin First Nations and we are here because this land was occupied. In recognizing that this space occupies colonized First Nations territories, and out of respect for the rights of Indigenous people, it is our collective responsibility to critically interrogate the colonial histories and present-day implications of this and to honour, protect, and sustain this land.
