Land Acknowledgement

The Ganaraska Hiking Trail Association acknowledges that the Ganaraska Hiking Trail passes through the traditional territories of the Anishinaabek, Wendat-Huron, and Haudenosaunee nations. The Hiking Association also acknowledges that some practices of settlement on lands were not conducted with the attitude of respect for the natural environment, which was characteristic of Indigenous people’s relationship with land, water, sky, flora and fauna. Hiking offers opportunities to connect meaningfully with the natural environment. Reconciliation with our natural surroundings in the form of learning to live with respect for nature is a step toward reconciliation with Indigenous peoples.
