The lands and the waters we are working on are part of ancestral territories that, since time immemorial until today, serve as a home, meeting place and venue for interaction and exchange for indigenous peoples, notably the Innus, Eeyouch (Cris), Naskapis, Anishinabeg (Algonquins), Atikamekw, Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk), Hurons-Wendats, Mi’gmaq, Malécite, Abénaquis, Inuit, and other nations which live there today We recognize the past, present and future consequences of colonialism on these lands and waters and we actively work towards their decolonization.

This formula for territorial recognition has been endorsed by the members of GRIAAC/CIERA-MTL and slightly This formula for territorial recognition is inspired from the one endorsed by the members of GRIAAC/CIERA-MTL (UQAM and Université de Montréal) and the Université Laval.
