Let us take a moment to remember we are part of a colonial settler culture that lives on land inhabited by the Kanien’keha:ka tribe of the Haudenosaunne people.  These people were forced off the land with violence, broken treaties, and forced cultural assimilation.

Let us remember our wealth was created with the labor of enslaved people.  

Let us recognize this trauma.  Let us recognize the systemic oppression that continues to marginalize people today.  As members of the colonial-settler community, we need to dismantle these systems of oppression and move forward in peace.
