Land Acknowledgement Plaques
A land acknowledgement statement* offers open respect for Indigenous people who have loved and nurtured the land for many generations. These wonderfully artistic acknowledgement plaques are created using durable Gatorboard mounting with a routered hanging channel at the back of the plaque. We offer a personal/home version, and a business plaque.
These Land Acknowledgements meet the Truth and Reconciliation's "Call To Action" mandate, are wonderful to look at, soothing and nostalgic.
Plaques are special order. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
Plaque wording is tailored by default for Algonquin Territory. Please select the Customized Plaque if you wish the words to reflect a different territory or treaty area.
* The statement acknowledges in real time, the First Peoples of this continent called Turtle Island, and of the territory you live in. You speak in the present to acknowledge the original caretakers of the land and by respecting the present, you respect the past. Acknowledging this fact does not mean you have to give up your home or business. These are words of respect. But there’s more to it...
Words are not enough...
Actions have to back up your statement - setting a plaque on the wall is a good start, but it isn’t enough. Develop a working relationship with the Indigenous people whose territory you are residing or operating on. Learn who they are, what their history is, stand with them to advocate for positive change and education. Be an ally. Learn how you can give back locally to programs that benefit the people whose land you’re on. Become part of the solution to restoring the cultural balance of the people.
