We acknowledge that Western University is located on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak and Chonnonton peoples, on lands connected with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796 and the Dish with One Spoon Covenant Wampum.
With this, we respect the longstanding relationships that Indigenous Nations have to this land, as they are the original caretakers. We acknowledge historical and ongoing injustices that Indigenous Peoples endure in Canada, and we accept responsibility as a public institution to contribute to reconciliation by revealing and correcting miseducation as well as renewing respectful relationships with Indigenous communities through our teaching, research and community service. As anthropologists, we strive to improve understandings across cultures and to work toward equitable relationships with the Nations who host us on their land.
