Land Acknowledgement / Reconnaissance des territoires traditionnels 

York University recognizes that many Indigenous Nations have longstanding relationships with the territories upon which York University campuses are located that precede the establishment of York University. York University acknowledges its presence on the traditional territory of many Indigenous Nations. The area known as Tkaronto has been care taken of by the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Huron-Wendat. It is now home to many First Nation, Inuit and Métis communities. We acknowledge the current treaty holders, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. This territory is subject of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement to peaceably share and care for the Great Lakes region.  


L’Université York reconnaît que de nombreuses nations autochtones entretiennent des relations de longue date avec les territoires sur lesquels sont situés les campus de l’Université York, relations qui précèdent la création de l’Université York. L’Université York reconnaît sa présence sur le territoire traditionnel de nombreuses nations autochtones. La région connue comme Tkaronto a été préservée par la nation anishinabek, la Confédération Haudenosaunee et les Hurons-Wendats. Elle est désormais le foyer d’un grand nombre de communautés de Premières Nations, d’Inuits et de Métis. Nous reconnaissons les titulaires actuels du traité, la Première Nation des Mississaugas de New Credit. Ce territoire est soumis au traité de la ceinture wampum (« Dish with One Spoon »), entente définissant le partage et la préservation pacifiques de la région des Grands Lacs.
