Land Acknowledgement

As a settler-immigrant to Turtle Island, I acknowledge those whose land I currently occupy: Tkaronto, the land of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinabewaki, the Wendake-Nionwentsïo, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. I honour Indigenous history, sovereignty, and lived experience, and commit to the struggle for their freedom, preservation, and return of their ancestral lands.

As a native of the so-called Philippines, I stand in solidarity with the Indigenous Peoples, and condemn the blatant human rights abuses and violations committed against them, along with the careless overexploitation of their ancestral domain through illegal land grabbing, excessive mining, and deforestation.
