Land Acknowledgment & Action

Studio Orobica operates in Tkaronto (Toronto), on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples. Studio Orobica also acknowledges that Tkaronto is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaties signed with multiple Mississaugas and Chippewa bands.

What actions are being taken?

I recognize that a land acknowledgment is not enough. On behalf of myself and Studio Orobica, donations have been made to Is Starts With Us, Rainbow Railroad, Black Legal Action Centre and Sick Kids. My small business will continue to financially support organizations that uplift BIPOC & LGBTQ+ communities, as well as others in need. I acknowledge that I have more work to do to decolonize and foster reconciliation. I will do that work.
