Living on Treaty 6 territory, the original and everlasting home of the Indigenous nations of the Cree, Nakota, Blackfoot, Dene-Tsuu T’ina, Métis and many other Indigenous peoples. I am committed to better understanding my relationship to the Treaties, how they have not been honoured by settlers and being an active participant in a path forward. As the descendant of settlers from many places, Germany, Japan, and many more, I aspire to uphold friendship, solidarity, listening and learning in all that I do.
