Indigenous Acknowledgement

Nightingale Academy recognizes with gratitude and a spirit of reconciliation, that we work and live within the traditional, unceded lands and travelling routes of the Indigenous Peoples represented in Treaties 4, 6, 7, 8 and 10; and the home of the Métis Regions I, II, III, IV, V and VI who also share a deep connection with these lands.

My maternal grandparents often reminded me as a child that the only reason my grandparents survived their first winter in Canada living in the woods near Margot Saskatchewan was because of the life saving assistance they were provided by the local indigenous people.

I am forever grateful.
