Territorial Acknowledgement

Dawson Creek Catholic Social Services Society acknowledges that the land upon which we live, work, and offer our services is on the unceded, ancestral and traditional territories of the Treaty 8 Nations. Including Sikanni, Slavey, Beaver (Dunne-za), Cree and Saulteau. We thank them for allowing us to meet and learn together on their territory. The continuing relationship between Indigenous peoples and this land contributes to the rich knowledge and culture of the South Peace region.
