Autism Edmonton respectfully acknowledges that we are gathered on the Indigenous land in Treaty 6 territory. This place – Amiskwacîwâskahikan, Edmonton – is on traditional lands, meeting grounds, gathering places and traveling. The footsteps of diverse Indigenous peoples have marked this territory from time immemorial – Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Dene, Nakota Sioux, and Métis – whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to enrich our communities.
We are all treaty members, with recognition and respect for Indigenous Peoples and the traditional territories on which we live, work, and play. We call upon our collective honoured traditions and spirits to share responsibility for stewardship of this beautiful land and our community.
