My home, my place- ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ (amiskwaciwâskahikan) aka Edmonton
I live on the occupied land of Treaty 6 territory- home and traditional meeting ground for many Indigenous Peoples including Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Metis, and Nakota Sioux, whose presence continues to influence our community. As a product of three generations of migration, I am saddened to know little about my traditional lands and culture but I am still actively trying to reclaim what has been lost. Just like I would appreciate my community's support to strengthen my heritage journey, I believe it must be my responsibility to help others trying to heal and reclaim their heritage. Which in truth, our country has yet to fully reconcile all the damage to our peoples.
