Land Acknowledgement
Nourish is located in Kwipek, or so-called Bedford, part of Mi’kmak’i, the unceded and ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq peoples. While this is where our offices are located, we support food work from Unama’ki to Kespukwitk. As Treaty people, we strive to work under the Peace and Friendship Treaty of 1752 by incorporating Mi’kmaw values, like cooperation, stewardship of nature and sharing, into what we do, but recognize that we have much learning and unlearning still to do. Nourish recognizes the inequities connected to colonization and commit to working towards creating an equitable, diverse, and inclusive and community for all. We invite you to reflect upon this land acknowledgement and what it means to your personal story. In the spirit of equality and inclusion, if we can improve on this statement, please contact us.
