DOCTalks Land Acknowledgment

DOCTalks would like to acknowledge that the land we reside on, known as Turtle Island (North America), is also on the traditional unceeded territory of the Walatakewiyik (Maliseet) Peoples. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace & Friendship” which the Walatakewiyik (Maliseet),  Mi’kmaq (Mi’kmaw), and Peskotomuhkati (Passamaquoddy) People’s signed with the British Crown in the 1700s. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq / Mi’kmaw, Walatakewiyik and Peskotomuhkati title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
