What is a land acknowledgment?
Historically, a land acknowledgment is a traditional practice shared amongst Indigenous groups to recognize the Indigenous land & territory they are visiting. Today a land acknowledgement remains a way to express one’s gratitude to the Mi’kmaw people for being stewards of the land that we live and work on.
