Surviving and Fighting Dehumanizing Practices in Ontario Institutions
Passing Through the Darkness of our Past Lives into the Light of our Present Lives
We start by acknowledging the land directly related to the lived experiences shared in this learning resource. Anishinaabe Elder Mona Stonefish and Anishinaabe scholar Dolleen Tisawii’ashii Manning co-developed the following Land Acknowledgement:
We honour and respect the Original Peoples, the Anishinaabeg of the Three Fires Confederacy among the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi. We acknowledge that we live and work on their ancestral lands and that they continue to be dispossessed to the benefit of all settlers.
