"Our call to action is based on the needs of the community, from Toronto to across the globe"
Gurbeen Bhasin, founder and executive director
Toronto/Tkaronto is part of Treaty 13 between the Crown and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This land is the traditional territory of the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Huron-Wendat, and the Métis. This territory is subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement to peaceably share and care for the Great Lakes region. Today, this land continues to be home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to live, work, and play on this land.
Aangen's recognition of the contributions and historic importance of Indigenous peoples to this land is directly connected to our commitment to make the promise and the challenge of Truth and Reconciliation real in our work and communities, and in particular to bring justice to the survivors of residential schools and their families, as well as to all missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit individuals.
