We acknowledge that our meeting will be taking place 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 land continues to be home to diverse Indigenous Peoples (First Nations, Métis, and Inuit) whom we recognize as contemporary stewards of the land. We provide this land acknowledgment as one step towards reconciliation and to reflect our desire for increased interactions and dialogue between the ornithological community and Indigenous peoples throughout the Americas.

Special thanks to our conference supporters
