Land Acknowledgement

Land Acknowledgement

For those who do not know what a land acknowledgement is, it is a formal statement to recognize the unique and enduring relationship that exists between Indigenous Peoples and their traditional territories. The Conestoga College community acknowledges that we are on the traditional territory of the Anishnawbe (Ah-nish-nah-bay), Haudenosaunee (Ho-deh-no-show-nee) and Neutral peoples.

We encourage you to learn about the traditional lands you are located on as we all study virtually across Canada and the world!
