Our Commitment to Truth and Reconciliation
We are reminded that Guelph is situated on treaty land that is steeped in rich indigenous history and home to many First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people. We acknowledge the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation of the Anishinaabek Peoples on whose traditional territory we work and live.
We recognize the significance of the Dish with One Spoon Covenant, the peace agreement made between Indigenous nations before the Europeans arrived. It characterizes our collective responsibility to each other and Mother Earth to take only what we need, leave enough for others, and keep the dish clean.
Sandbox is committed to participating in reconciliation through education, respect and appreciation for the land we work and live on, and standing with Canada’s Indigenous Peoples in their battle to make their voices heard.
