Acknowledging the Land
In 1805, Tkaranto (Toronto) was surrendered through the Toronto Purchase (Treaty 13) with the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
OCAD University is situated on the Treaty lands and territories of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as well as the traditional territories of many nations, including the Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat. These are the original owners and custodians of the land on which we stand. Tkaranto (Toronto) is home now to many urban Indigenous communities.
Developing a relationship with the land means also developing relationship with people. We welcome you to research and learn more about the land you are on. Whose Land and Native Land are great places to begin.
