Land Acknowledgements and Indigenization Guides

UNBC Traditional Territory Acknowledgements

Since time immemorial, Indigenous peoples have walked gently on the diverse traditional territories where the University of Northern British Columbia community is grateful to live, work, learn, and play. We are committed to building and nurturing relationships with Indigenous peoples, we acknowledge their traditional lands, and we thank them for their hospitality.


We encourage all members of our community to engage with learning about the Indigenous communities and nations on whose lands we reside by visiting the webpage Take the time to explore the Indigenous BC Tourism website which highlights Indigenous tourism experiences, cultural sites, and initiatives in British Columbia. By supporting Indigenous businesses, artists, and entrepreneurs, we actively contribute to the prosperity of Indigenous communities.

Please refer to UNBC’s Indigenous Resource Dati for specific territorial acknowledgments for each UNBC campus, and many other resources.

Canadian Association of University Teachers’ Guide to Acknowledging First Peoples & Traditional Territory provides a national reference to land acknowledgments for Canadian Universities.


BCcampus Guides to Indigenization of Curriculum

BCcampus and the Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills were instrumental in supporting the development of six useful guides for post-secondary BC institutions. These guides cover resources for teachers and instructors, leaders and administrators, front-line staff and advisors, curriculum developers, and researchers. Please refer to the Pulling Together series from the BCcampus Open Textbook Collection.
