Recognizing that McGill University and Canada are on unceded Indigenous land, and that the social determinants of health disproportionately affect the peoples of Indigenous nations, we acknowledge that the McGill School of Population and Global Health (including the McGill Summer Institutes in Global Health) is situated on the traditional territory of the Kanien'kehà:ka, which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous Peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous Peoples whose presence marks this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
