Researchers from around the world will gather in Windsor for the 67th Annual Conference on Great Lakes Research—the fifth time we’ve gathered in this central location along the Detroit River, or Waawiyaataanong Ziibi , known as “where the river bends” in Anishnaabemowin. A great program is in store with four days of scientific sessions and speakers centered around our theme Shared Lakes: One Water, One Health. This focus will offer a unique opportunity for both the science and local communities to share about the health of the Great Lakes and will highlight the intersections between environmental and public health in the context of large lakes, often shared across borders, and the communities impacted by them.
Mark your calendars for May 20–24, 2024. You won’t want to miss it!
IAGLR 2024 Land Acknowledgement
IAGLR is excited to meet on lands that are rich with history of Indigenous and Settled peoples across the Laurentian Great Lakes and Turtle Island/North America. Waawiyaatanong is the Traditional Territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations comprised of the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Bodéwadmi (Potawatomi). As Treaty Peoples, we honor the longstanding relationships with First Nations people in this place in the 100-mile Windsor-Essex peninsula and the straits—les détroits—of Detroit. We also acknowledge these lands and waters remember the histories of those who arrived as migrants in this generation or generations past, as well as those who arrived involuntarily as refugees or a result of the Transatlantic Slave Trade and slavery. The conference honors and pays tribute to the history of this land and seeks to honour ancestors past, present, and future.
