Land acknowledgement

I make my home as an uninvited settler on the traditional territories of the Michi Saagig Nishnaabeg. Peterborough is built upon land and water that was shared with settlers with an understanding of mutual cooperation through treaties like the Rice Lake Purchase (Treaty #20) and the Williams Treaties.
