St. Augustine Land Acknowledgement

The St. Augustine CHS Land Acknowledgement Committee finalized a statement that recognizes the treaty area where our school is situated. A special thank you to the following committee members for their time researching and developing our school land acknowledgement: students Lola Irelewuyi, Ahastan Surees, Chloe Wong, and teachers Ms. Pirrello, Ms. DeGregorio, as well as our Indigenous community partner Mim Harder.

St. Augustine Catholic High School is situated on the ancestral lands of the Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee (ho-de-no-shone-ee), and Anishinaabe (A-nish-e-nah-bay), and is near the Chippewas of Georgina Island. As a school community, we seek to become educated about the First People of this land, past and present. By listening to and learning from these Original Stewards, we can work together to protect and sustain this land.
