Land Acknowledgement

Equity In Dance recognizes that many Indigenous Nations have longstanding relationships with the territories upon which Equity In Dance's directorial team lives, learns, creates, and performs that precede the founding of Equity in Dance.  Equity In Dance is grateful to be learning, collaborating, and creating on the traditional lands that have been cared for by recorded and unrecorded human activity for thousands of years.

The area known as Tkaronto has been care taken by the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Huron-Wendat. It is now home to many First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities. We acknowledge the current treaty holders, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is subject of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant.

 

Equity In Dance acknowledges the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the Tsleil-Waututh, Kwikwetlem, Squamish, and Musqueam Nations, upon which  Equity In Dance directorial team lives, learns, creates, and performs.

 

It is on the ancestral and treaty lands of Turtle Island that the entirety of Equity In Dance's team lives, learns and creates.
