Newfoundland-Labrador Federation of Co-operatives acknowledges with respect that we gather on the ancestral homelands of the Beothuk, whose culture is lost and cannot be recovered. We acknowledge that the island of Ktaqmkuk (Newfoundland), where our office is located, is the unceded traditional territory of the Beothuk and Mi’kmaq, and we acknowledge Labrador as the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Innu of Nitassinan, the Inuit of Nunatsiavut, and the Inuit of NunatuKavut. As a co-operative entity, we recognize that the spirit and principles of co-operation have been nurtured and practiced by First Peoples since time immemorial, and we commit to upholding the aims of truth, reconciliation, and decolonization in the work we do.
We thank First Light NL for the use of aspects of their land acknowledgement.
