Huronia Historical Parks; Sainte-Marie among the Hurons and Discovery Harbour, would like to acknowledge that we are located on lands which are
the traditional and Treaty territory of the Anishinabek people, now known as the Chippewa Tri-Council comprised of Beausoleil First Nation, Rama First Nation, and the Georgina Island First Nation.
We also recognize that we are located on land which was once the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and that our community is the traditional homeland of Metis Nation and to a large and diverse community of Indigenous peoples.
Indigenous people continue to care for this land and shape the Ontario, Canada and North America of today — We want to show this respect. Hundreds of years after the first treaties were signed, they are still relevant today.
We acknowledge that many Indigenous Nations have long-standing relationships, both historic and modern, with the territories upon which these historical sites are located, and that these relationships precede their establishment.
May we never forget these legacies, and may we learn well the lessons their descendants have to teach us about living on this Earth.
