Diamond is based in Tiohtiá:ke, colonially known as Montreal. She acknowledges that this entire island is located on unceded and unsurrendered Indigenous land. The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation are recognized as the custodians of the land and water on which she works and lives. Tiohtiá:ke has historically been an important meeting place for different Indigenous nations. She recognizes the unique and disproportionate hardships Indigenous people have faced and continue to face as a result of colonialism. It is important for her to not only acknowledge these hardships, but to also actively resist colonialism and neo-colonialism in the diversity of forms they take, as she stand in solidarity with Indigenous peoples. Through her work and her life, she encourage settlers to acknowledge their privilege and question how they are working to be anti-oppressive everyday.
This land acknowledgement was inspired from the one used in the Pan-Asian Collective, a McGill University student group whose mission is to increase meaningful engagement in Asian history and culture within the McGill community.
