We acknowledge with respect the history and culture of the peoples with whom Treaty 6 was signed and the land upon which Elk Island Public Schools reside. We also acknowledge the traditional homeland of the Métis Nation.
We recognize our responsibility as Treaty members and honour the heritage and gifts of the First Peoples.
We commit to moving forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of collaboration and reconciliation.
