OAC Work

We acknowledge the gift of being on Anishnabek territory and specifically on Algonquin Territory. We want to recognize the two closest Algonquin First Nation communities: Kitigan Zibi and the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan.

We also recognize that today - Ottawa is a gathering place for First Nations, Inuit and Métis from across Canada.

This land acknowledgement commits us to the original relationship we were building together – through friendship and peace.

The Coalition uses the term “Aboriginal” which is inclusive of First Nation, Inuit and Métis people. Increasingly the term “Indigenous” is used to reflect the same groups. We are respectful of whatever term an Indigenous person or organization uses to self-define
