Suddenly, Peter heard singing. He looked around to realize the singing came from the five-foot-tall flowers that outlined the path. They were all different bright colours and textures. Their faces were cartoonish with big eyelashes and blushing cheeks. They turned to face him as he walked, like a sunflower to the sun. Their singing voices sounded like Disney princesses and their songs fluttered through the air. Peter reached out to delicately touch each flower as he walked. A giddy smile spread across his face as he touched each petal briefly. Some felt like leather, others felt like satin or suede. As he walked, his other senses explored the world around him. He felt butterflies of excitement in his stomach as he picked up the faint scent of honeysuckles. Then he heard birds chirping, glittering the air with their tweets. Warm gusts of wind encouraged him to move forward and the next thing he knew was walking through beige sand.

WUSA recognizes that much of the work we do happens on the traditional territory of the neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. The land we work on is covered by the Between the Lakes Treaty, No. 3 (1792), and this region is still home to First Nation, Inuit, and Metis peoples from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work, play and live on this land and acknowledge that it is our collective responsibility to make our community and world a better place for all people. We acknowledge that educational institutions have not been a safe space for Indigenous students in the past and we continue to work to ensure that this is no longer the case. The work towards truth and reconciliation is ongoing, please do your part and take time to learn more: TRC 94 Calls to Action | MMIWG Calls to Justice Report | Native-Land.ca | Student Supports & Clubs
