The Foundation For Black Communities (FFBC) collaborates with partners and implements events and activities across Canada on traditional unceded territories and waters of many Nations, including the Kanien’kehá: ka Nation; the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, and the Métis Nation (Region 3); the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples; and Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Wendat and many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
We are currently on the land of Indigenous communities who have been stewards of these lands since time immemorial and who continue to be systematically erased by policies and practices that remove their histories from this place.
We also acknowledge board and staff members of African descent whose ancestors were forcibly displaced as part of the transatlantic slave trade, brought against their will, and made to work on these lands. We believe that advancing Indigenous sovereignty and Black liberation are deeply and inextricably linked to one another and we remain committed to advancing both.
