Land Acknowledgement

June 1st, 2021

To all Indigenous Peoples: we are so sorry.
We are devastated by the tragic discovery of a mass grave of 215 children at a former residential school in Kamloops, BC. We grieve with the families and all Indigenous Peoples who are, once again, reliving the ongoing trauma of colonization and White supremacy.

There is a hotline open 24/7 for those directly impacted:
The National Indian Residential School Crisis Line
1-866-925-4419

As children of White settlers and as a business that operates on stolen land, it’s our responsibility to use our platform and privilege to share resources that aim to support the healing and reconciliation of Indigenous Peoples.

For the month of June, we are donating a portion of sales to two important organizations, both of which offer resources and services for Indigenous communities:
Indian Residential School Survivors Society
Legacy of Hope Foundation 

METTAMADE headquarters occupies land in Hamilton, Ontario. We acknowledge that we are on Anishinabewaki ᐊᓂᔑᓈᐯᐗᑭ, Attiwonderonk (Neutral), Haudenosaunee, Mississauga, and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation land. The mere acknowledgement of land rights is not enough.

We commit to continuously learning, unlearning and amplifying the stories and voices of Indigenous Peoples.
