Green Light Arts acknowledges that our organization and programming is situated on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishnawbe and Haudenosaunee peoples. The Haldimand Treaty, established in 1784, was originally 950,000 acres of land promised to the Six Nations people covering 6 miles on either side of the length of the Grand River. Waterloo Region is located on the Haldimand Tract which has now been reduced to approximately 48,000 acres.

It is our duty as treaty people to acknowledge the origin and impact of settler societies on this land and on its Indigenous people and that this self-awareness is only a first step towards colonial reconciliation.
