Land Acknowledgement

Embrave carries out its work in the land of the Dish with One Spoon Treaty. This land, since time immemorial, has been, is, and continues to be the Territories of the Anishinaabe, Huron-Wendat, and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nations as well as the Haudenosaunee Confederacy.

Embrave moves beyond tokenized gestures and affirms that land acknowledgements are but one step toward understanding our relationship to the land and complicity in the ongoing cultural genocide of Indigenous peoples.

It is all of our collective responsibility to decolonize ourselves and our institutions as well as care for the land for future generations.
