Land Acknowledgements

Shorefast has teams working primarily on Fogo Island, Ottawa, and Toronto.

 

On Fogo Island, we respectfully acknowledge the territory in which we gather as part of the ancestral homelands of the Beothuk, the island of Newfoundland as the homeland of the Mi’kmaq, and Labrador as the homeland of the Innu of Nitassinan, the Inuit of Nunatsiavut and the Inuit of NunatuKavut.

 

We respectfully acknowledge that Ottawa is built upon un-ceded Algonquin Anishinabe territory. We acknowledge that Toronto is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples. Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands. At every opportunity, we commit to using our platforms to encourage a reverence for Indigenous peoples across Canada and their knowledge, and to strive for truth, healing, and collective prosperity as our nation moves forward together on a journey of peace.
