We acknowledge that the land on which we gather in Treaty Six
Territory is the traditional gathering place for many Indigenous
people. We honour and respect the history, languages, ceremonies
and culture of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit who call this territory
home.
The First People’s connection to the land teaches us about our
inherent responsibility to protect and respect Mother Earth. With this
acknowledgement, we honour the ancestors and children who have
been buried here, missing and murdered Indigenous women and
men, and the process of ongoing collective healing for all human
beings. We are reminded that we are all treaty people and of the
responsibility we have to one another.
