Visitor to this Land
I acknowledge, with a gesture of respect, peace, and friendship that I am a visitor to the unceded ancestral homelands of the Lkwungen people, - also known as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. The surrounding land and waters of this territory are inextricably tied to Indigenous culture and storytelling.
I am an uninvited guest in this special place, so with an open heart I commit to respectfully listening, learning, and collaborating as an active participant in truth and reconciliation, decolonizing my practices, and doing the often uncomfortable and difficult work to repair and develop a respectful relationship with this place and its original inhabitants.
