This project recognizes the Algonquin peoples as the traditional custodians of the land on which I have arrived, and acknowledges the First Peoples on whose traditional, unceded territory we gather and create.  As arrivants, we show recognition of and respect for the host nation, the Omàmiwininìwag (Algonquin peoples, in the Algonquin language), and for all First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples who have lived on Turtle Island since time immemorial.

The Arrivants Project gratefully acknowledges the financial support from the City of Ottawa’s Arts & Cultural Funding Program
