Land Acknowledgment

Mohawk College derives its name from the Mohawk Nation, one of the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. The Confederacy marks a union of peace and friendship, and Mohawk College honours that union by recognizing the Six Nations of the Grand River and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.

We acknowledge that the territories on which Mohawk College and its campuses are situated are governed by the Between the Lakes Treaty, the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Agreement, and the Upper Canada Treaty Agreement. These agreements are binding to this day and represent our mutual commitment to maintain healthy, reciprocal and respectful relationships with the many Indigenous nations and peoples of this area. We acknowledge this and iterate our dedication to inclusivity, to friendship and to valuing the ongoing contributions of Indigenous peoples and communities.
