Dr. Regna Darnell is the General Editor of the Franz Boas Papers: Documentary Edition, and the Founding Director of First Nations Studies at the University of Western Ontario.
I acknowledge that Western University is located on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek (Ah-nish-in-a-bek), Haudenosaunee (Ho-den-no-show-nee), Lunaapeewak (Len-ah-pay-wuk) and Attawandaron (Add-a-won-da-run) peoples, on lands connected with the Dish with One Spoon Convenant Wampum and with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796. This land continues to be home to diverse Indigenous people whom I recognize as contemporary stewards of the land and vital contributors of our society.
