We at Georgian Bay Festival would like to respectfully acknowledge that we are situated on the traditional land of the Anishinaabeg people. The Anishinaabeg include the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Pottawatomi nations, collectively known has the Three Fires Confederacy.
Together, we honour Indigenous history, and culture and commit to moving forward in the spirit of reconciliation and respect with all First Nation, Metis, and Inuit people.
The first step to reconciliation is recognizing the existence of Indigenous Peoples. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada speak to the significance of education as the key to reconciliation. A shared understanding of how our collective past brought us to where we are today will help us walk together into a brighter future.
