Land Acknowledgement


The Segal Centre is situated on land which has served as a diplomatic meeting place for Iroquoians and Algonquians including Anishinaabe, Atikamekw, and Huron-Wendat. The people of the Kanienkéha:ka nation have long been considered the caretakers of the land and water around Tiohtià:ke the island also known as Montreal. We acknowledge that we are located on a land that has been the site of human creativity and story-telling for thousands of years, and are thankful that we are able to create, collaborate, play, and work here.
