Congress 2023: On Land Acknowledgements

This Land Acknowledgement…

“A Land Acknowledgement or Territorial Statement is a beginning step in understanding the occupation of Indigenous Lands. It is not where responsibilities end… So, when you gather at York this spring, will you listen to or read the Land Acknowledgement with feeling, commitment and awareness? Will you hear how we wrote these words with intention and responsibility?”

Read about deepening your experience of Land Acknowledgments in Dr. Green’s blog.

In preparation for your Congress visit, we recommend reviewing the Indigenous protocols for Congress 2023.
