SLIAO Land Acknowledgement
As we gather in this virtual space, we recognize that we are connected with one another through the winds that blow air into our lungs and through the waters that move from up in the sky to deep into the earth. SLIAO acknowledges that the ground beneath our feet is historically the home of Indigenous Peoples.
At SLIAO, we reaffirm our commitment and responsibility in improving relationships between nations and to improving our collaboration with each other.
We want to offer a moment of reflection to everyone here to consider the land you are on. I invite you into that moment now.
Now that you’ve had a moment to reflect, I’d like to ask you to return to this space and turn your attention to why we’re gathered here today.
