Our workshops took place in Toronto (from the Mohawk word Tkaronto). This land is the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island, and we are grateful to have an opportunity to build relationships on, and with this land – including with many individuals in our project.


A warm thank you to: all the participants who contributed to our project, and helped us learn and grow, and to the co-investigators, and research assistants who supported the project.  A special thank you to the exhibit and community report working group members, and staff at the three sites for their warm welcome.
