College of the Rockies:
At the College of the Rockies, we acknowledge the privilege of working on the traditional lands of the Ktunaxa and Kinbasket People. We acknowledge this history and approach this partnership with gratitude and a true spirit towards reconciliation.
Selkirk College acknowledges the traditional territories of the First Nations of the West Kootenay and Boundary regions: the Sinixt (Lakes), the Syilx (Okanagan), the Ktunaxa and the Secwépemc (Shuswap) peoples. The mountains, rivers, lakes and lands of these territories have sustained life and human communities since time immemorial. Learning and education have been part of this land for millennia.
Selkirk College is grateful to the keepers of these territories where we live and learn, and the wisdom and beauty that surrounds us. Selkirk College is honoured to work with an engaged and proud Métis community who make the West Kootenay and Boundary region their home. We honour and celebrate the values, cultures, and ways-of-knowing that all Indigenous learners bring to Selkirk College.
