The Aga Khan Museum is built on land that is and has been under the stewardship of many Indigenous peoples over millennia, including the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, the Wendat and the Mississaugas of the Credit Nation. We are grateful for the opportunity to work and live on this land and be in this territory.
