Land Acknowledgement Lab

Want to write an Indigenous land acknowledgement that’s not just performative? Land acknowledgements are deceptively simple – they’re only a few lines of text, but best ones are written as part of a larger process of learning and reflection.

In the Land Acknowledgement Lab we’ll experiment with different ways of expressing your intentions using this one simple tool.

We’ll work together one-on-one (or two or three) in a focused session to make informed choices about every word you choose and the message you convey.


What you’ll get

  • Dedicated time with a knowledgeable partner who’ll be your sounding board. 
  • An Indigenous land acknowledgement that is meaningful, accurate, and reflective of your local context.
  • Advice on quality research sources, proper terminology, pronunciation and language, and the intention you want to convey.
  • The confidence to explain the meaning behind each and every word, and why you chose it.
  • Support for reaching out to your local Indigenous community.
