Land Acknowledgement

We exist to support artists across Alberta, the traditional lands of the Dane Zaa (Beaver), Siksikaitsítapi (Blackfoot), Denésoliné (Chipewyan), Paskwāwiyiniwak (Plains Cree), Tsuut’ina (Sarcee), Nakawē (Saulteaux), Dene Tha’ (Slavey), Iyarhe Nakoda (Stoney), Sakāwithiniwak (Woodland Cree), Nehiyaw (Northern Woodland Cree) and Métis peoples, now also shared with many Inuit and other Indigenous peoples from across the world. CARFAC Alberta, as a provincial organization, recognizes that many in the arts community, and our artistic forebears, are newcomers or guests in these lands. We will take time and effort to learn about the effects of colonization on these lands and peoples, and how to be better relations here. These lands are deeply interwoven with the cultures, stories, songs, languages, ceremonies, and lifeways of the Indigenous peoples of this place. These creative relationships have been unfolding for millennia, and so we acknowledge that our support for making and sharing art here has to aspire towards living better together within this enlarged reality.
