HELLO, BONJOUR, BOOZHOO, SAGO,
Hamilton Forest School respectfully acknowledges that the Land on which we explore, learn, play, and upon which our forest school is held is Land that carries knowledge and wisdom. Deep knowledge has been stored in this Land by the by the Anishinaabe, and Haudenosaunee peoples who have cared for it and lived in relationship with it since time began.
We seek to honour these Nations by creating meaningful relationships between our school community and the members of these Nations. As active participants in the communities of Missisaugas of the Credit and the Six Nations of the Grand River we recognize our responsibility to these Nations to protect the Land beneath our feet and to learn its lessons. Today, and every day that we step foot upon Mother Earth, Hamilton Forest School affirms that we are committed:
● to learning the knowledge of this Land;
● to pursuing right relationships with the traditional caretaker-nations of this Land;
● and to upholding and honouring their wisdom and culture.
