“It helps plant a seed that there’s people here before you, these are the lands that they’re on, and they’re still here.”
@What traditional territory is your city on?
Are you on unceded xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) territory? The territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca and Mississaugas of the Credit River? Or unceded Abenaki/Abénaquis, Kanien’kehá:ka, Haudenosauneega (St Lawrence Iroquois), and Huron-Wendat territory?
If you don’t know, a website called Native Land can help answer the question for you.
The crowd-sourced, interactive website mapping traditional territories of Indigenous people, treaties and language has grown to become so much more, and has just become a Canadian not-for-profit.
