We would like to acknowledge the history of the traditional territory and honour the longstanding relationships of the three local First Nations of this land and place in Southwestern Ontario. The Attawandaran once settled this region alongside the Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee, and this land served as their traditional hunting grounds. The three longstanding Indigenous groups of this geographical region are: The Anishinaabeg, The Haudenosaunee and the Lunaapeewak. We would also like to recognise the three First Nations communities neighbouring the City of London: Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Oneida Nation of the Thames and Munsee-Delaware Nation.
We value the significant historical and contemporary contributions of local and regional First Nations of Turtle Island (North America).
