    I acknowledge that I am living and working on the traditional territory of the Attawandaron (Neutral), Anishnaabeg, and Haudenosaunee Indigenous peoples. As an ally to traditional peoples I am committed to working toward dismantling racism that I, as a Canadian citizen, have perpetuated and benefited from. I continue to seek understanding and to learn ways to decolonize my research, my classrooms, and my relationships.
