Land Acknowledgement in the Legislature

It’s 2021 and the Manitoba Legislature does not have an Indigenous land acknowledgement. This needs to change.

If the government is serious about reconciliation, it needs to start here, at the heart of our democracy, by recognizing that the Manitoba Legislature stands on the Treaty 1 territory, and that the MLAs who assemble there represent the traditional territories of the Anishinaabe, Dakota, Cree, Anishininew, Dene and Inuit people and the homelands of the Métis Nation.

I support the NDP’s call to start each day in the Legislature with an Indigenous land acknowledgement.
