Land Acknowledgement

McGill University, and the International Development Studies Students’ Association (IDSSA), is founded upon the unceded traditional territories of Indigenous peoples, namely the Haudenosaunee Confederacy  who are also known as the Guardians of the Eastern Door, and Anishinabeg Nations. More specifically, our campus is built on territory that has long acted as a site of meeting and exchange amongst the Kanien’kehá:ka peoples, who are the rightful stewards of these lands and waters. We are settlers here on Tiohtià:ke (Montréal), which is situated in the larger Turtle Island (North America). It is important to keep this constantly in our minds, so that we can move forward actively resisting neocolonialism in all of its forms and manifestations.
