Consistent with the Truth and Reconciliation Recommendations and in particular Recommendations that support and encourage us to adopt and advance the (#43) full implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as the framework for reconciliation. And with an aim to walk forward together in the spirit of reconciliation.

We acknowledge:
~ We all have a role in reconciliation
~ We are all Treaty People
~ That every person in Canada must know the truth about Canada’s history and the impact of colonialism on Indigenous Peoples including the role and impact of aspects such as: Doctrine of Discovery; Residential School System; and failure to honour Treaties to name but a few.
~ The disproportionate harm and suffering brought about to and for Indigenous Peoples in Canada, many of which continue today and needs reform.

Inspired by the call to (#79.ii) revise the policies, criteria, and practices of the National Program of Historical Commemoration to integrate Indigenous history, heritage values, and memory practices into Canada’s national heritage and history.

Encouraged by the call to (#94) faithfully bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, Her Heirs and Successors, and faithfully observe the laws of Canada including Treaties with Indigenous Peoples and fulfill our duties as a Canadian citizen.

This respectful honouring is being designed and developed to include:
– Active involvement of Elders and Knowledge Keepers
~ Educational elements surrounding our acknowledgements noted
~ Indigenous Cultural Practices (Blessing; Story Telling; Dance and Song)
~ Celebration of Achievements of Canadians
~ Cultural presentations of song, dance, art and history
~ Bringing our community together with an aim to advancing understanding, acceptance and to walk forward together in a spirit of reconciliation
~ Fireworks which will incorporate music, sounds and songs of Indigenous artists and voices.
~ Festivities which will occur throughout the day on July 1st.
