The Guelph Resilience Festival takes place on the ancestral land of the Attawandaron/Attawandaronk/Neutral Peoples. The colonial processes by which we came to live on this land were and continue to be to be a great injustice; we recognize that great harm has come to the original peoples of this land through colonization. We strive to be accountable to this in all aspects of our work by fostering positive relationships while challenging destructive ones. We welcome feedback and critique on our efforts.
