We respectfully acknowledge that we are on the traditional lands and territories of Indigenous people in Alberta. Generations from past, present and future. In doing so, we want to recognize the significance of our relationships with the land and the peoples who call this ‘home.’ As we reflect on supporting community design in the Youth Mental Health Hubs initiative, we will engage and embrace the teachings we are gifted from the first peoples regarding the history and connection to the land. As treaty people, we commit to a reciprocal relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous worldviews that honour and respect ways of knowing and being, ones that can be reflected and supported with the communities in building strong foundations for all youth and families to learn, work and play.
