Personal Recommitment to Reconciliation

In the spirit of reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples in the City of Leduc, I pledge to:

  1. Gain foundational knowledge about Indigenous Peoples, their past experiences, and their current realties. Which may include:  
  2. Actively support our Indigenous neighbours in the City of Leduc through participation and/or recognition of the following dates:  
    • National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirit People on May 5 
    • National Indigenous History Month each June, and National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21  
    • Treaty 6 Day on August 23 
    • National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Orange Shirt Day on Sept. 30 
  3. Not perpetuate stereotypes and Indigenous-related myths and misconceptions in my conversations and observations. 
  4. Acknowledge we are all Treaty People with shared responsibility to this land and one another. 
  5. Encourage others around me to keep reconciliation an ongoing effort.  

The City of Leduc is situated within Treaty 6 Territory, the ancestral and traditional territory of the Nêhiyaw (Cree), Dené, Niitsitapi (Blackfoot), Anishinaabe (Saulteaux), Nakota Isga (Nakota Sioux), as well as the Métis people.
