Traditional Opening

Wednesday May 15   11:00 AM to 11:30 AM (30 minutes)
BMO Atrium, Evergreen Brick Works
Our time together begins with a Traditional Opening to recognize that the Nourish Food for Health Symposium is held on Treaty 13 territory, the traditional land of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabe, Huron Wendat, Petun, Mississaugas of the Credit River, and is now home to many Indigenous peoples. T(ka/o)ronto is in the Dish with One Spoon Territory, a treaty signed between the Anishinaabe, Mississaugas and Haudenosaunee to share and protect the land and the waters.

Nourish is grateful to host Indigenous communities from across Turtle Island over the course of the symposium. We have planned our programming so as to acknowledge the impact of systemic colonization and racism on Indigenous land and people, and to celebrate Indigenous cultures, resilience, and leadership in re-shaping a more just healthcare system.
