McGill University is located in Tiohti:áke [Joh-jaw-gay], Montreal on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, notably the Anishinabeg [Ah-nish-ih-nah’-bey] and Kanien’keha:ka [Ga-niyen-ge-HAA-ga] nations, the latter of which is one of the 6 nations composing the Haudenosaunee [Hoh-DEE-noh-SHoh-nee] confederacy.
We, as members of the McGill community, acknowledge our position as settlers on this unceded land and acknowledge the perpetual repercussions of colonialism on Indigenous peoples. Indeed, beyond territorial depossession, colonialism has led to the erasure of Indigenous culture, the exclusion of Indigenous voices in politics, and many forms of intergenerational trauma.
It is important that we all do our part in dismantling individual biases and societal barriers that have negative repercussions on Indigenous lives to this day. We call for members of the McGill community to engage in real action and reflection. Ways of doing this include educating ourselves, uplifting indigenous voices, integrating Indigenous knowledge, pushing for more diversity in our government and institutions, and supporting Indigenous organizations and charities. Some local organizations to get involved with include:
- Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal
- Native Montreal
- Native Friendship Center
- The Open Door Montreal
