As a resident of Waterloo Region in Ontario, I acknowledge that I am on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishnawbe, and Haudenosaunee peoples. Expanse Movement & Flow is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River.
The settler actions which resulted in me coming to live on this land were and are deeply unjust. They have caused and continue to cause harm to Indigenous people. I make effort and work in ways that go beyond 'sorry' or a land acknowledgement like this page of this website. I have committed to provide on a monthly basis 20% of all proceeds received to the Water First charity and I continue to strive to do more. This charity works to educate and bring clean water to the First Nation communities around Canada. This is one step I am working to take to do more than just words.
I welcome feedback and critique on myefforts.
