Children’s Land Acknowledgement

Through all of time (sweep arm in arc from left to right) Indigenous nations have lived here in relationship with living things (make a heart with hands).

On and in the earth (touch floor), and the waters (make wave motions), and the sky (make bird with hands).

The Algonquin (hold up one finger), the Anishinaabe (hold up two fingers), the Haudenosaunee (hold up one finger on the other hand) and the Huron-Wendat (hold up another finger on the second hand) – four Peoples shared this land through time (bring the four fingers together).

With gratitude, we join them in caring for the Earth (turn hands over to cup palms), sharing stories and creating a welcoming place (put hands over heart).
