Land Acknowledgement

 

TQFF would like to acknowledge the indigenous territories that we gather on: this stolen land is the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.

We acknowledge ourselves as trespassers, and do so to show solidarity with Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island. We recognize that decolonization must be an active and ongoing process of reconciliation  –  TQFF is dedicated to creating a space in our programming to promote the creative and political work of indigenous queer and two-spirited voices.
