The Port Stanley Festival Theatre recognizes the land on which we gather is in the traditional territory shared by the Haudenosaunee, Anishinabek, Lunaapeewak and Atiwonderonk (Neutrals) peoples. This land is a part of the McKee Treaty 2, 1790.
Port Stanley Festival Theatre respects the rights and traditions of Indigenous
Peoples in Canada. We reflect on the unique connections and relationships
Indigenous persons and their ancestors have had with this place for thousands of years. This comes from the important understanding that we are all related and connected, including our connections to story telling by Elders to their youth to educate and inspire. We pay respect to this tradition by telling and sharing stories so we may Create, Inspire, Develop, and Sustain story telling traditions through live theatre for generations to come.
Let us listen, discover and care for this land by learning from our mutual history.
This acknowledgement was written with an understanding that we are still learning. Thank you for your support, patience and willingness to learn and grow with us.
