“Toronto is on the territory of the Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee…” The land acknowledgement, recited on university campuses, provincial legislatures, even NHL games, has become commonplace in much of the country. But with its growth there are lingering questions: why do we do this, am I doing this right, is this reconcili-ACTION, or just a hollow gesture? I'll consider the history of the acknowledgement, its evolution, when people get it right, but also really, really wrong.
