SOOS Land Acknowledgement
SOOS acknowledges that we are meeting on the traditional territory of many nations, including the Huron-Wendat, the Petun, the Seneca, the Anishnabeg, and the Mississaugas of the Credit.
This territory is covered by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Haudenosaunee and the Ojibwe to care for and share the lands and resources around the Great Lakes.
This territory is still the home of many Indigenous people from nations across Turtle Island, and we are grateful for the opportunity to meet here today.
