Title: As Indigenous land acknowledgments become the norm, critics question whether the gesture has lost its meaning
Authors: Friesen, Joe
Issue Date: 2019-12-12
Publisher: Canadian Historical Association / Société historique du Canada
Series/Report no.: volume 2 numéro 2;
Abstract: “Take a moment to connect with the land,” the posters said. “No matter what part of Mother Earth our family originates from, we all have a relationship to the land. Let’s build a healthy relationship together.” But the problem was that the posters, billed as an Indigenous land acknowledgment for Toronto’s Pride celebration, didn’t actually mention the First Nations whose land was being acknowledged. The omission prompted a wave of criticism and an apology from Pride Toronto.
