Acknowledging the land in which we are situated is happening more frequently than ever before. Stemming from stories of the land that span generations, it is a traditional custom of Indigenous people that dates back centuries when welcoming outsiders onto their land and into their homes. We acknowledge the land as an act of reconciliation that honors the authentic history of Turtle Island and the original people of this territory. Calgary Foundation encourages others to incorporate land acknowledgement into their reconciliation journey.
