Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that we are in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq, Maliseet and Passamaquoddy Peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1726.

We acknowledge that people of African descent have been in Nova Scotia for over 400 years, and we honour and offer gratitude to those ancestors of African descent who came before us to this land.
