“For thousands of years the Greater Toronto Area has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. It is part of the 'Dish With One Spoon Territory’, a treaty between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee that committed them together to share the territory and protect the land. Other Indigenous peoples and Nations have subsequently entered this territory in the spirit of peace, friendship and respect. It is on these lands and in this spirit that Tyndale seeks to engage in its work.”
This land acknowledgement was developed specifically for Tyndale University in 2018, under the guidance of Elder Dr. Terry LeBlanc and in consultation with individuals from Six Nations and the urban Indigenous community of the greater Toronto area.
We acknowledge that our campus is located on traditional Indigenous land, and those of us connected to this community gather, work and study in the context of this history. It is our privilege and responsibility to partner in the journey to reconciliation, sustaining a safe, welcoming, and informed place of learning for everyone.
