For Our Kids parents and teams live, work, meet, and act in communities that exist on land that has been taken from many Indigenous peoples across Turtle Island, whether through unfulfilled treaties or outright occupation of unceded territory. Acknowledging that Indigenous, First Nations and Inuit are the original stewards of the lands and lifeforms that For Our Kids works to protect, we aim to learn from them and to be better accomplices in this undertaking.
Parents have come together in these communities to create a better future for all kids. Using the settler names by which those communities are known is not intended to disrespect the traditional ways in which the land was identified. We commit to working toward a better understanding of the history of the lands we live on.
