Dates: October 19-20, 2018— CAGONT 2018 Conference
Venue: The main conference venue will be Sidney Smith Hall (see map), at 100 St. George Street, Toronto.
Acknowledgement of territory: We would like to acknowledge this sacred land on which the University of Toronto operates. It has been a site of human activity for 15,000 years. This land is the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today, the meeting place of Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work in the community, on this territory. Revised by the Elders Circle (Council of Aboriginal Initiatives) on November 6, 2014.

Reconnaissance du territoire : Nous aimerions reconnaître cette terre sacrée sur laquelle l’Université de Toronto exerce ses activités. C’est un site d’activité humaine depuis 15 000 ans. Cette terre est le territoire des Premières nations Huron-Wendat et Petun, des Sénécas et, plus récemment, des Mississaugas de New Credit. Le territoire a fait l’objet de l’entente Dish With One Spoon, une entente entre la Confédération iroquoise et la Confédération des Ojibwés et les nations alliées pour partager et prendre soin des ressources autour des Grands Lacs de façon pacifique. Aujourd’hui, Toronto est toujours le lieu de rencontre de nombreux Autochtones de l’île Turtle Island et nous sommes reconnaissants d’avoir l’occasion de travailler dans cette communauté, sur ce territoire. Révisé par le Cercle des aînés (Conseil des initiatives autochtones) le 6 novembre 2014.
