Our grade 7 studies have been studying and learning how to write treaty acknowledgments:
- Before all here, I would like to acknowledge, as a treaty person, that we are on Treaty Six Territory. Therefore, we continue to respect and honour the territory of the Nehiyaw, the Nehithaw, the Dakota, the Nakota, or the Nakota Sioux, the Nahkawe and the Homeland of the Metis. I wish for reconciliation and to converse and build friendship with the Metis and Aboriginal Peoples. May we be friends as long as the sun shines, the grass grows, and the rivers flow.
- I acknowledge that we are all Treaty Six People. We need to treat others as equals. We need to see that others’ traditions or ways of living do not matter more or less than ours. We acknowledge the Treaty Six People, Nehiyaw, the Nehithaw, the Dakota, the Nakota, or the Nakota Sioux, the Nahkawe and the Homeland of the Metis. We need to respect the land and treat the land well. We need to respect the people around us and the land and animals that live around us. We acknowledge that Reconciliation and Truth is important to everybody on Treaty Six Territory. We will continue with our respects.
- The Treaty Six land that we live on, honour, and respect is the traditional walking grounds of the Nehiyaw, and Nehithaw, Nahkawe, Nakota, Dakota, and the Homeland of the Metis. We acknowledge and will continue to respect our relationship and collaboration with the land, the people, and the animals that live on it.
- I recognize that we live on Treaty Six Territory, that is the home of the Indigenous People, such as the Nehiyaw, Dakota, Nakota, Nahkawe, and Homeland of the Metis. I am very grateful to be a part of this community. If it were not for my ancestors, I would not be here.
