FIRST PEOPLES LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

WE ACKNOWLEDGE THE TERRITORY OF THE FIRST PEOPLES

 

As far as your eyes can see and your feet can walk you are upon the territory of the Ktunaxa Peoples.

 

Akisqnuk First Nation (called Akisqnukniks in Ktunaxa) are people of the Ktunaxa Nation, located near Windermere, BC. 

 

Ktunaxa (pronounced tun-a-ha’) is the name of the Kootenai Tribe in the Kootenai Language.

 

The Indigenous people moved upon this land 14,000 years before the arrival of the first European people. 

 

They moved through this area in cycles with the seasons, gathering and hunting as they went. 

 

Historically, other Indigenous peoples also harvested, hunted, fished and settled seasonally within the area, including the Shuswap peoples who for centuries have travelled to and inhabited the Ktunaxa homelands.

 

The Secwe’pemc (pronounced Se-KWEP-umk-wh) is the name of the Shuswap Tribe in the Shuswap language and they live on reserve land near Invermere, BC. 

 

We are grateful to these First People for allowing us to work and play in their territory.

Produced with the cooperation of the
Golden Museum, The Akisqunuk First Nations and the Secwe'pemc Tribe
