Land Acknowledgement

Welcome.

It is a great privilege to share art, stories and learning on this beautiful territory, which has been the site of human activity for many thousands of years.  

We respectfully acknowledge that Northumberland County is located on the Mississauga Anishinaabek territory and is the traditional territory of the Mississauga.

Northumberland Festival of the Arts respectfully acknowledges that the Mississauga Nation are the collective stewards and caretakers of these lands and waters in perpetuity, and that they continue to maintain this responsibility to ensure their health and integrity for generations to come. 

As an organization and as individuals, we at the Northumberland Festival of the Arts are in a process of learning how we can be better treaty partners.
