Grateful for the Lands We Inhabit
Across cultures and traditions, dance and movement have the power to speak to our shared human experience.
However, throughout Canada’s history, the government legally deprived Indigenous peoples of their music and dance. And, despite brave attempts to keep tradition alive, many cultural expressions were lost forever.
Today, our campus sits upon the traditional territories of many nations, and is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit. We celebrate the descendants and cultures of the first peoples who lived here as a vibrant and integral part of our society today.
We gratefully acknowledge and deeply value the opportunity we have to learn from and cherish the contributions of Indigenous peoples of the past, present and into the future. Read a full land acknowledgement here.
