The Jewish Public Library Youth Space, which organizes the MTL YA Fest, acknowledges that we are situated on unceded traditional territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka people, as well as a meeting place with other Iroquoians and Algonquians including Algonquin-Anishinaabe, Atikamekw, and Huron-Wendat.

For more information on land and territory acknowledgements, please take the time to get informed and learn about indigenous history and the treaties which governed and continue to govern the territories on which you may be presently. Here is a tool that may help you to discover which indigenous homeland you are on: https://native-land.ca/
