Traditional Territory Acknowledgement

The Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority (ABCA) acknowledges the original stewards of this land, the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe.

We recognize the Huron Tract Treaty signed in 1827. We recognize that this territory was subject to the Dish with One Spoon wampum, under which multiple nations agreed to care for the land and resources including plants and animals, in peace.

As shared stewards of this land and water, the ABCA is grateful to have the opportunity to meet and work in this territory.
