Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge we are on the ancestral homelands of the Coast Salish Peoples, who have lived in the Salish Sea basin since time immemorial. We respect this place and honor the sacred spiritual connection to the land, water, and its people, past, present, and future.

By acknowledging these lands and their original Indigenous inhabitants, we reflect on the impacts of colonialism and continuing impact on Coast Salish descendants. We express our deepest respect and gratitude to the traditional people of this territory for their enduring care and protection of the land which we currently share.
