Acknowledgement of Traditional Land

The sacred land on which the Faculty of Medicine operates has been a site of human activity for thousands of years. This land is the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.

Today, Toronto is also the home to Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work in the community, on this important traditional territory.
