Land Acknowledgement

Riverview is located within the traditional, unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq peoples.  

This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which these Indigenous peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with the surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized the Wabanaki title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.  

We affirm our commitment and responsibility in improving relationships between nations, and to improving our own understanding of local Indigenous peoples and their cultures.
