We acknowledge the land for sustaining us and providing us with the necessities of life. This territory is covered by the Dish with One Spoon treaty and the Two Row Wampum treaty which emphasize the importance of joint stewardship, peace and respectful relationships. Let us remember that we are all stewards of the land and of each other.
Sheridan campuses reside on land which has been and still is the traditional territory of several Indigenous nations, including the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Wendat, the Métis and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. Since time immemorial, numerous Indigenous nations and Indigenous peoples have lived and passed through this territory.
Sheridan affirms it is our collective responsibility to honour the land, as we honour and respect those who have gone before us, those who are here, and those who have yet to come. We are grateful for the opportunity to be learning, working and thriving on this land.
