Canada, as we know it today, has been the home of the ancestors of First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples since time immemorial. Indigenous peoples are and always have been the original keepers, defenders, caretakers and spiritual custodians of Turtle Island (now known as North America). All non-indigenous people are indeed settlers on these lands.
Body Mind Light operates from within the treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit, as well as the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Huron-Wendat and Anishinaabe. As a settler, I am deeply grateful to be able to live, work, create, teach, learn and flourish on these ancestral grounds and I uphold the voices and values of Indigenous communities. In stewardship with Mother Earth and in recognition of the enduring Indigenous presence on these lands, I respectfully acknowledge the First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples of the past, present and future.
