The Land Acknowledgement

As a recognized Aboriginal company, Woodland Heritage Northwest acknowledges that our work is intertwined with the deep and diverse histories of all First Nations and Métis, people. We are grateful for the opportunity to work in these territories and are committed to the recognition and respect of those who have lived, traveled, and gathered on the lands since time immemorial. We will continue to document, preserve, and share the Indigenous heritage that we are committed to stewarding and remain committed to building, fostering, and encouraging a respectful relationship with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples based upon principles of mutual trust, respect, reciprocity, and collaboration in the spirit of reconciliation.
