Land Acknowledgement from the President
Hello! Kwei! Bonjour!
I greet you from Quebec City, unceded ancestral territory of the Huron-Wendat nation. In this way, I recognize having benefited from the heritage of French settlers in New France and I recognize the inequalities, injustices and colonial patterns that still exist today at the expense of the members of the First Nations of Canada. As a geographer and academic researcher, I want to take part in the movement of reconciliation between the two peoples and I believe that the Canadian Association of Geographers is an excellent platform for maintaining dialogue within safe spaces. I invite you to learn about the heritage of the place where you live by following the link https://native-land.ca/ and to support the CAG in its mission of disseminating geographical knowledge in the service of restoring peace and social justice.
