Mundial Montréal recognize that its event and activities take place on unceded Indigenous lands. We acknowledge the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation as stewards of the lands and waters on which we gather today. Tiohtiá:ke / Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations, and today a diverse Indigenous population, as well as other peoples, reside there.
It is with respect for ties to the past, present and future that we recognize the ongoing relationships between Indigenous Peoples and others in the Montreal community. We hope we can learn from the traditional keepers of Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal and continue to grow as a community, respecting the Earth and honoring the spirits that unite us to celebrate music, culture, and art.
We also want to recognize the solidarity that exists between the resistance of Indigenous people and the struggles for liberation of Black people, and that undertaking a process of decolonization also involves supporting the life and liberation of Black people.
