This production takes place in Kjipuktuk, the Great Harbour, which has been and continues to be the traditional, unsurrendered, and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) people first signed with the British Crown in 1725. These treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations. Our presence here is a result of the systems of colonialism, gentrification, and displacement. As we reflect on how we benefit from the use of this land, we can consider: what are we doing to reconcile our shared history, in order to ensure justice and equity? We are all treaty people. By learning about the treaties that we are a part of, we can take action to ensure that we and our governments abide by and respect these treaties. We are grateful to be able to live, work, play, and create on this land.
