Land Acknowledgement

Grateful.

We are grateful and humbled to have the opportunity to farm on these lands. As people of settler roots and as the owners of Revolve Farms we acknowledge that we are on the unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinabeg. This is the traditional territories of many peoples including the Haudenosaunee, Wendake-Nionwentsïo (Huron-Wendat), Omàmìwininìwag (Algonquin), Anishinabek, and Mississauga peoples.

This land has held, and continues to hold, great historical, spiritual and sacred significance. Revolve Farms recognizes and honours the enduring presence of these peoples.

This land acknowledgement is meant to act as an invitation to seek knowledge about the peoples that have stewarded these lands for centuries and as a sign of great respect. It is a practice for us to reflect and bring awareness to the work that is still to be done. It is one step in the journey.

Research.

We used native-lands.ca as a starting point to research this page. It's a great resource and from there we were able to easily find each nation's website to learn and connect. We seek to continually challenge our biases and further educate ourselves.
