Guelph is situated on treaty land that is steeped in rich Indigenous history and home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis people today. We acknowledge that the Art Gallery of Guelph resides on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation of the Anishinaabek Peoples, who are the ancestral holders – and today the treaty holders – of this land. We recognize the significance of the Dish with One Spoon Covenant to this land and offer our respect to our Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and Métis neighbours as we strive to strengthen our relationships with them. We express our gratitude and recognize our responsibility for the stewardship of the land on which we live, work, and create.
