Indigenous Land Acknowledgement

For an introduction to what Indigenous Land Acknowledgements are and why they matter, I encourage you to do your research by searching for guides such as the one made by ‘The Native Governance Centre‘ and look at examples like the ones provided by Carleton University.

I Ashley Grenstone, am responsible for acknowledging the land that I live and work on – that being the unceded traditional lands of the Anishnaabe Algonquin peoples – as a white-passing person who grew up in urban settings across ‘Turtle Island’ (Colonially referred to as “Canada) and apart from the Indigenous culture and community of my mixed settler, Algonquin, Mi’kmaq/Metis Ancestry.
