Land Acknowledgment

McGill University is situated on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehà:ka (Ga-niyen-ge-HAA-ga), which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous Peoples, including the Haudenosaunee (Hoh-DEE-noh-SHoh-nee) and Anishinabeg (Ah-nish-ih-nah’-bey) nations.

We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous Peoples whose presence marks this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
