IEMERGENCE SASKATCHEWANAHNII, TANSI

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Saskatchewan includes lands from Treaties 2, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10.

We invite you to think about whose land you are on. We would like to acknowledge that we are all on the traditional territories of the Indigenous people across Turtle Island. To the original caretakers of this land of which we all stand, we thank them for allowing us to be here today. To all that were here for thousands of years before us across Turtle Island, we honour the struggles and the lives of those who gave themselves for it. We acknowledge the ancestors beneath our feet, with our ears to the ground, we can hear them. An infinity of footsteps of those who long called this land home, the unfolding of bundles, the undoing of colonization and the opening of this land to allow treaty to come alive. We affirm our relationship to each other, to this land, and to Creator.

MISSION

We desire to inspire people to seek out and develop the courage to stand up against adversity and reflect on their qualities of inner strength, fearlessness, and resiliency and how they can project themselves in their world.

VISION

We are passionate about fostering pathways, cultivating relationships and journeying alongside Indigenous youth, their families and communities to empower, equip and engage them in reclaiming their culture within a holistic framework and rediscovering their Creator-given identity and purpose.
