Thank you for joining us for the 2017 ABC Copyright Conference hosted by Queen’s University at the Donald Gordon Conference Centre in Kingston, Ontario on Thursday, June 29 to Friday, June 30, 2017.
Queen’s University is situated on traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee Territory.
To acknowledge this traditional territory is to recognize its longer history, one predating the establishment of the earliest European colonies. It is also to acknowledge this territory’s significance for the indigenous peoples who lived and continue to live, upon it – people whose practices and spiritualities were tied to the land and continue to develop in relationship to the territory and its other inhabitants today. The Kingston Indigenous community continues to reflect the area’s Anishinaabek and Haudenosaunee roots. There is also a significant Métis community and there are First people from other Nations across Turtle Island present here.
