Territorial Acknowledgements

Territorial acknowledgements are a way that people include an awareness of Indigenous presence and land rights in our everyday lives.

They are often made  at the beginning of ceremonies, lectures, or public events. Acknowledging the Indigenous territory you are on, and you personal connection to it, can be a subtle yet powerful way to recognize the true history of colonialism and a need for change in our settler colonial societies.
