Acknowledgement of Territory
It is appropriate to acknowledge and pay respect to the ancestral and traditional territories and local First Nations. Acknowledging the territory in which we are located honours the relationship between the land and the traditional stewards. Just as we honour our own ancestors and invite them into our lives; we honour the ancestors who walked this land long before we were able to gather here today.
The Cariboo Family Enrichment Centre is located on the traditional lands of the Tsq’escenemc (Canim Lake First Nation) within Secwepemcúl̓ecw.
