We acknowledge and thank the Katzie, Tsawwassen, Kwantlen, and Musqueam First Peoples on whose traditional, unceded, and stolen territories we live, work, and play.
We acknowledge the ancestors; those who have walked before us and thank them for the stewardship of this beautiful, bountiful land where we learn, teach, and create. We commit to take care of it, respect it, and use the resources wisely.
We acknowledge the Elders, the keepers of traditional knowledge, wisdom, and Indigenous ways of knowing. We have much to learn about resilience and responsibility from you. We commit to asking questions, being open to learning from others, and acknowledging what we don’t know.
We commit to make the community we share with you a more peaceful, loving, and safe place.
Huy ch q’u.
