Thames Talbot Land Trust acknowledges that the land on which it operates lies within the territories of the Haudenosaunee, Anishinaabeg, Lenaapeewak, Attawandaron, and Wendat  peoples. In addition, the First Nations communities in the area we work in are Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Oneida Nation of the Thames, Munsee Delaware Nation, Delaware Nation at Moraviantown, and Kettle & Stony Point First Nation.
