We acknowledge that Ottawa, and the entire Kitchissippi (Ottawa River) watershed, is Algonquin territory. We are committed to helping decolonize this territory, and to supporting national and transnational indigenous struggles.
Our collective is for anyone who wants to be in solidarity with Indigenous people, but we want to be clear that most of us are settlers. Our group strives to listen to and take direction from Indigenous voices. Learning from indigenous knowledge and indigenous knowledge holders is crucial to decolonizing ourselves, and to challenging the colonial ideas and practices that dominate Canadian society and undermine indigeneity."
