Land Acknowledgement

Our team acknowledges that we are on the traditional territory of many nations in two regions: 

  1. Treaty 13A territory of the Wendake-Nionwentsio, Mississauga, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Anishinabewaki, and Haudenosaunee. 

  2. Treaty 6 territory of the Cree, Métis, Plains Cree, Blackfoot, and Očhéthi Šakówiŋ.

As settlers who have lived and grown up on native land, we understand that we are benefiting in a Canadian culture and society that is a product of past and modern-day genocide of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples. It is common fact that the present-day Canadian legal (Constitution Act 1867, Indian Act 1985, etc.), political, and economic systems are still at the detriment of Indigenous peoples today. With this in mind, our team is taking steps to educate ourselves, take action to support Indigenous peoples in our communities, and run this podcast from a decolonial perspective that may challenge our prior biases and beliefs..  

With respect to this podcast, we have discussed this internally at lengths and continue to reflect on how this guides the direction of our show. We may have made mistakes in the past and we will most definitely make mistakes moving forward as we are still learning, but we are trying to do better in our personal lives and with every podcast we make. When we refer to our show as a "podcast series dedicated to exploring the stories of prominent Canadians" we are referring generally to people who have lived on this land and not specifically to people who are deemed Canadian by the government (i.e. passport or birth certificate).
