A Visit to the Toronto Public Library

Land Acknowledgement Statement

Haudenosaunee (ho-den-o-show-nee),
Mississauga and Anishinaabe (a-nish-nah-beh) Nations,
Came together with all their relations.
Living together, they had a united wish,
To share the land and waters in peace, like One Spoon with a Dish.
Now many Indigenous families, Métis and Inuit too,
Live here in treaty agreement, with me and you;
In the spirit of Peace, Friendship and mutual Respect,
We protect each other and the land, which we should never forget.
