NIROW acknowledges that the land on which we live and work is of the Haldimand Tract within the territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee people. We are thankful to the First Nations, Métis and Inuit people who care for these territories and those across the province.
We acknowledge that Indigenous peoples continue to endure inequality, violence, and oppression due to the history of colonialism and unfair power structures. This is magnifed by the historical and ongoing widespread failure by settlers and institutions to uphold their responsibilities within the Dish With One Spoon Covenant.
With our core value of integrity, and as beneficiaries of this land we stand in allyship with lndigenous peoples, committing to a responsibility to acknowledge and understand its history and the current experiences of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples; ensuring that we do not perpetuate the harms of colonization.
