About the London Arts Council

 

The London Arts Council is committed to working in peace and healing with all Indigenous people. We work closely with the surrounding First Nations communities: Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Oneida Nation of the Thames, and Munsee-Delaware Nation. This virtual space represents a commitment from the London Arts Council to foster relationship building, as the consensual sharing of knowledge concerning Indigenous history, culture, and philosophy is the first step in this process.
