The Bruce Trail Conservancy, and the Iroquoia Bruce Trail Club wish to acknowledge and honour the lands
of the Niagara Escarpment as the traditional territory of Indigenous peoples. In both spirit and partnership,
we recognize and thank the Anishinaabek, Huron-Wendat, Tionontati, Neutral Nation, Haudenosaunee,
Métis, and all who provided stewardship of these lands over millennia.
Recognition of the contributions of Indigenous peoples is consistent with our commitment to making the
promise of Truth and Reconciliation real in our communities. We are grateful for the opportunity to live,
work, and play here and thank all those who have served and continue to serve as caretakers of this special place.
We are also mindful of broken covenants and the need to reconcile with all our allies and relations.
Together, may we care for this land and each other, drawing upon the strength of our mutual history through
peace and friendship, to create a lasting legacy of conservation for generations to come.
