Tkarón:to Land Acknowledgment

We respectfully acknowledge that the 11th International Public Market Conference will be hosted in the traditional territory of many Indigenous Nations. Tkarón:to has been cared for by the Anishinabeg Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Huron-Wendat, and its current treaty holders, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.

Now home to many First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities, this territory is subject to the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement to peaceably share and care for the land and resources in the Great Lakes region. We look forward to actively finding ways to support Indigenous food sovereignty at the conference and beyond.

Local Indigenous food sovereignty initiatives hosting public markets:

  • Deeply Rooted: a Black and Indigenous Farmers Market advocating for Food Sovereignty in Canada.
  • Dashmawaan Bemadzinjin: an Indigenous-led organization with an array of community-based programs including a seasonal market in downtown Toronto.
