Theatrefront gratefully acknowledges that we all live, work and create on sacred land, which has been a site of human activity for 15,000 years.
This land is the territory of the Haudenosaunee (Six Nations or Iroquois Confederacy), the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River.
Today, the meeting place of Toronto is still the home to many indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work in the community, on this territory.
