We acknowledge that our work takes place on the territories of the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit who have lived on and stewarded the land now known as Canada and its stories since time immemorial. We acknowledge the colonial legacy of museums and the harm caused by our sector and commit to respecting and promoting Indigenous peoples’ right to self-determination. We seek to collect the many perspectives that contribute to our shared history, present, and future as we work towards reconciliation.
