Summer Garden at SSUC

Since time immemorial, Indigenous peoples have occupied and cared for
this land. In acknowledging this land, the traditional home of the
Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee, we seek to rebuild right relations with
First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples, to learn from them, and to live on this
land with respect and gratitude for its bounty
