NAHLA Land Acknowledgement

The Northern Alberta Health Libraries Association acknowledges that we are located in Amiskwacîwâskahikan (Beaver Hills House).  This Land is a crossroads and gathering place for nations including the Nehiyawak (Cree), Siksikaitsitapi (Blackfoot), Nakota Sioux, Haudenosaunee (Iroquois), Dene, Ojibway / Saulteaux / Anishinaabe, Inuit and other distinct Peoples. The knowledges and experiences of the Peoples of these nations are connected to the Land, and are dynamically present in this space today. We also recognize this Land is part of Treaty 6 Territory and Métis Region 4. As professionals engaging with concepts of knowledge production, knowledge diffusion and knowledge organization, we recognize it is our responsibility to respect Indigenous Ways of Knowing and with this statement we dedicate ourselves to moving forward in the spirit of partnership, reconciliation and collaboration.
