We would like to honor that we are guests on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish People, of the Malahat, Esquimalt, Songhees, Tsartlip, Tsawout, Tseycum and Pauquachin Nations, in the place now known as Victoria.  As guests here, we wholeheartedly commit to stewarding the land in respectful, earth-honoring ways and commit to supporting Indigenous peoples relationship to this land.

 

We honor this place where we are.  Our hearts give thanks for the abundance of plant life; the diversity of trees; the two legged, the four legged and the winged creatures whose home this is; the mountains that surround us and the estuary that borders the land here. We are forever grateful for the time we spend here.
