Queen’s University is situated on traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee Territory. To acknowledge this traditional territory is to recognize its longer history, one predating the establishment of the earliest European colonies. It is also to acknowledge this territory’s signiﬁcance for the Indigenous peoples who lived, and continue to live, upon it –people whose practices and spiritualities were tied to the land and continue to develop in relationship to the territory and its other inhabitants today. The Kingston Indigenous community continues to reﬂect the area’s Anishinaabek and Haudenosaunee roots. There is also a signiﬁcant Métis community and there are First Peoples from other Nations across Turtle Island present here today.
