Territorial Acknowledgement

We recognize and acknowledge with respect the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples on whose traditional territory the University of Victoria is located and the Songhees, Kosapsum and WSÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day. CUPE 4163 aspires to align with Indigenous Resurgence and the struggle for decolonization.

May we build strong working relationships with all local nations and walk the path towards reconciliation together, with trust, humility, kindness, and respect. Our work will reflect the intention of peace, friendship, and understanding, while we continue to walk softly on these ancestral lands.
