Hello, my name is Chris Gismondi, I’m a queer white-qallunaat Settler of Scottish and Italian descent. I’m a first generation Canadian from Head of the Lake Treaty no. 14, Anishinaabek Mississauga, Haudenosaunee, and Wendat territory. I’m a student on unceded Kanienkehaka territory in Montreal at McGill University, studying Art History and History, with an Indigenous Studies minor. I joined the Montreal YRI team to help educate other non-Indigenous people about our treaty responsibilities and start dialogues about reconciliation.
I am Kane from Montreal. I was born to a South American mother and a First Nations father. I am here to learn about my culture and others and continue to enrich others.
