Next Chapter for Divorcing Families Society acknowledge the importance of the land and community. In the spirit of reconciliation, respect, reciprocity and truth, we honour and acknowledge that we live, work and play on the traditional territories of the Treaty 6 territory, the traditional and ancestral territory of the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux and the Métis Nation of Alberta; Treaty 7 – the traditional and ancestral territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy, Kainai, Piikani and Siksika as well as the Tsuu T’ina Nation and Stoney Nakoda First Nation; Treaty 8 territory, the traditional and ancestral territory of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit; and Regions 2, 3 and 4 within the historical Northwest Métis Homeland.
These sacred gathering places provides us with an opportunity to engage in and demonstrate leadership on reconciliation.
Next Chapter for Divorcing Families Society acknowledges the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We respect the histories, languages, and cultures of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose presence continues to enrich our vibrant community. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
