Why does Backcountry Women make a land acknowledgement?
The Backcountry Women community has the privilege of spending recreational time in nature in this great land we call home. We strive to be good stewards of the land we live, work and play on by following and educating on Leave No Trace principles. But we acknowledge that this land is the ancestral and traditional homeland of the Indigenous peoples who were here before us; it came to us through broken treaties, widespread massacre and cultural genocide.
We aim to honour and recognize Indigenous peoples as the historical and traditional stewards of the land, and to cast light on the history of how we came to have access to the land; and therefore we make a land acknowledgement ahead of each of our activities.
