Black Mallard Poetry of London, Ontario is located on the traditional territories of the Anishinaabek, Haudenosaunee, Lūnaapéewak, and Chonnonton Nations, on lands connected with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796 and the Dish with One Spoon Covenant Wampum. This area continues to be home to diverse Indigenous Peoples (First Nations, Métis, and Inuit) whom we recognize as contemporary stewards of the land and waterways, and as vital contributors to our society. The three Indigenous nations in this vicinity are the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Oneida Nation of the Thames, and the Munsee-Delaware Nation. We are grateful for the opportunities to engage in the process of learning how to be a better treaty partner.
