Indigenous Acknowledgement and Honouring Statement

Neighbours United condemns the devastating actions governments and colonizers at all levels have perpetrated against Indigenous Peoples who are the traditional and rightful stewards of the diverse ecosystems in which we work and live.

We honour the many Nations who have never given up their rights and responsibilities to the lands they are part of. We acknowledge the right of the Sinixt Peoples to gain recognition from governments which have attempted to silence them by declaring them extinct.  We stand in solidarity with the Indigenous land and water protectors to demand that governments immediately and meaningfully recognize the inherent rights of the First Peoples and cease actions that undermine those rights.

As a declaration of our commitment and a means of educating ourselves and our communities, we acknowledge that we operate within a system that has relied and continues to rely on stolen lands and exploitation of those who are the rightful occupants. In honouring the traditional guardians of the Earth, we continue to learn from their teachings in our common goal of restoring the health of the planet and of all people.

Acknowledgement and Honouring Policy

Neighbours United representatives will make efforts to learn individually and collectively within their work about the Indigenous Peoples’ whose lands they are on while working for Neighbours United. Staff will have annual paid time to do this on-going learning and action taking. Board members, contractors, and volunteers will be encouraged to do this learning along with the staff.
