We acknowledge the sacred land on which our venues operate, and where the Fall for Dance North festival takes place: Tkaronto. It has been a site of human activity for 15,000 years and is the territory of the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe and, most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, the meeting place of Tkaronto is still 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.
