At PCMCH, we start meetings with a Land Acknowledgement. Land Acknowledgments show recognition of Indigenous lands, treaties and peoples, and encourage us to think about what happened in the past, what can be done in the future to help build positive relationships, and that we are all accountable for building these relationships. PCMCH recognizes that Land Acknowledgments, on their own, are not enough. Instead, they are a starting point and must go hand in hand with other efforts; it is through doing so that the legacies of colonialism can be broken, and a new and different understanding can be forged.
