Land Acknowledgment and Reconciliation Work Statement

February 2021

The members of Ogniwo Polish Museum acknowledge that the Museum is located in Treaty One territory, on the original lands of Anishnaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and in the homeland of the Métis Nation. Ogniwo’s members respect the treaties that were made on these territories, acknowledge our roles in the settlement and continued colonization of these territories, and the harms that have been brought to our fellow human beings as a result. We dedicate ourselves to educating ourselves about past and current events, the larger system of colonization that many of us have benefitted from and our role within it, and to taking steps where possible to collaborate in partnership with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples in the spirit of Reconciliation.
