Armed Guards…. It doesn’t bother me that there are armed guards in front of every store, parking lot, apartment and community. “Every” is probably misleading…
I respectfully acknowledge the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.
The lands my studio rests upon are territory of the Mississauga, a branch of the great Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi.
I acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day.
