Land acknowledgment

We are located on the unceded traditional territory and ancestral homeland of the Mi’kmaq Nation.

The foundation for our collective relationship can be found in the words and intent of the Peace and Friendship treaties that were first signed between the Mi’kmaq Nation and the Crown dating back to 1725. Within these treaties are the rights and responsibilities that form the basis of our Nation-to-Nation relationship.

In Nova Scotia, we recognize we are all Treaty People.

25-year theme 

A bird with its head turned backwards, carrying an egg in its mouth, while its feet face forward.

Our "Looking back. Thinking forward." theme is reflective of the African symbol of Sankofa. African Nova Scotian community voices draw upon the wisdom of the past, then carry it into the future (Sankofa), to recognize our strength of support for each other and community. We will continue to enhance the work of our institution as we work to build a more equitable community, firmly looking forward while grounded in the knowledge of our past.
