OLG pledges to foster the principles of Truth and Reconciliation

Recognizing that Indigenous peoples lived on this land for thousands of years before us is a small, but important step on our journey. In 2023, OLGers came together to revisit how we express our gratitude for the lands we work upon and honour the Indigenous peoples who continue to live and work on these lands.

OLG’S LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We are all Treaty People. Above all, we acknowledge and offer our gratitude to Mother Earth.

We honour the history of Turtle Island – the ancestral home and territories of many Indigenous Peoples including First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples.

As those who call these lands home, we recognize our duty to walk together in peace, friendship, and love. We share in the many gifts of Mother Earth and respect all the land, in keeping with the traditions of Indigenous Peoples.

OLG pledges to foster the principles of Truth and Reconciliation. We acknowledge the Treaty relationship and honour Indigenous knowledge, cultures, and practices.

Using heart-thinking we will seek to understand, respect, and sustain this beautiful land we share: “for as long as the sun shines, the grass grows, and the rivers flow.”
