Acknowledgement

With Deep Respect, We Honour And Acknowledge That…

As board members of the Centre for Earth and Spirit, we live, learn and create together on unceded W̱SÁNEĆ, lək̓ʷəŋən (Esquimalt and Songhees Nations), Quw’utsun territories, and the Blackfoot Confederacy (Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta). Together, we recognize Canada’s dark history and the long shadow of colonialism that continues to impact the lives of Indigenous People every day. Through our personal work, offerings and collaborations we aspire to embody and act in ways that honour Indigenous peoples’ long-standing relationships with land, to be honest and willing to meet the presence of intergenerational trauma and impacts of colonialism in all people, and to humbly accept our responsibility as settlers in this process of relationship repair. With accountability and respect, we endeavour to walk with all of creation in meeting the sorrows and grief of the past here in the present, where our future lives.
