Acknowledgement of Traditional Lands

Esquimalt Lagoon

Daily, we are grateful to Xwsepsum (Esquimalt) and Lekwungen (Songhees) families, who continue to share their knowledge about the lands' history and their cultural practices.

Our Indigenous Engagement Associate Director’s mission is to build a strong working relationship among local, provincial and national Nations and Royal Roads University with trust, humility, kindness and respect for each other.

We continue to practice a land acknowledgement to begin meetings, presentations, and events that exhibit respect by honouring these lands' rich history and walking softly on these ancestral lands.

Hay'sxw'qa si 'em!
