Since 1985, Continuum has had the tremendous fortune of exploring new ideas in music in Tkaronto, “where the trees meet the water”. Tkaronto is home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and has been a site of human activity for more than 15,000 years.
We recognize that we are here because this land was colonized. Indigenous communities and allies struggle against the ongoing consequences of our colonial system.
This land is the territory of the Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.
We are enormously grateful for the generosity of all Indigenous people who share this land with us and allow us to live and work here as uninvited guests.
