Reth Aur Reghistan would like to acknowledge the land that we are immigrants on. We are settlers on the sacred territory of the Anishnabek, the Haudenosaunee, the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently the Mississaugas of the Credit River.
The territory was the subject of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.
As a project that learns and shares stories from the Indigenous communities in Sindh, Pakistan, we are equally committed to learning from the knowledge, stories and folklore from the various Indigenous Nations in what we now call Canada.
We understand that solidarity is not a statement but a life-long commitment. We strive to continue learning, listening and holding those who are perpetuating oppressive behaviours in our communities, circles and work places accountable for their actions.
