& design

I acknowledge and am deeply grateful to be in recovery on Treaty 4 land which is the traditional territories of the Nêhiyawak, Anihšināpēk, Dakȟóta, Lakȟóta, and Nakȟóta, and the homeland of the Métis/Michif Nation.

I also acknowledge that 'design' disciplines have been complicit in the appropriation and destruction of traditional cultures and knowledge lineages. 

As First Peoples have done since time immemorial, I strive to be a responsible steward of the land and to respect the cultures, ceremonies, and traditions of all who call it home. 

As I open my heart and mind to the past, I commit myself to working in a spirit of truth and reconciliation to make a better future for all communities.
