"I would like to firstly acknowledge that I am an uninvited settler on stolen, unceded land. The location for this podcast is taking place on the territory Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, the Anishnabe and the Ho-do-no-sau-nee. I am grateful to Indigenous communities for their knowledge, education, and providing a safe haven for my family and many South Asian immigrant families to start a new life in."
