INTERSECTIONS FEMINIST SEMINAR SERIES

 

Intersections: A Feminist Seminar Series

Acknowledgement of the Land

We would like to recognize that each of these gatherings took place on the traditional territory of the Mississauga Anishinaabe Peoples, in the territories covered by the Williams Treaty. This terriitory is now home to Hiawatha First Nation, Curve Lake First Nation, Alderville First Nation, and the Mississaugas of Scugog First Nation. The original name for this land, in Anishinaabemowin, the language of the Michi Saagig Nishnaabeg, is Nogojiwanong, meaning “the place at the foot of the rapids.” The area was renamed Peterborough in the 19th century after being colonized by European settlers. It was not until 1923, after the colonization and theft of this land, that the Williams Treaties of this area were signed.
