Land Acknowledgement

Quest Art School + Gallery acknowledges and recognizes that it is located on land which is the traditional and Treaty territory of the Anishinabek people, now known as the Chippewa Tri-Council comprised of Beausoleil First Nation, Rama First Nation, and the Georgina Island First Nation. This territory is within the pre-confederation Treaty 5 and 16 and included within the Williams Treaties of 1923. Several Treaties of Peace were made on a National basis between the Crown, the Anishinabek and the Haudenosaunee peoples. The Dish with One Spoon Waumpum Belt and the Five Council Fire Waumpum Belt speak upon the peace agreements between these two Nations. We also recognize that we are located on land which was once the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and that our community is home to many citizens of the Metis Nation of Ontario and a large and diverse community of Indigenous peoples.
