R2MR Train the Trainer Program – Halifax, NS

R2MR Train the Trainer Program – Halifax, NS

October 31 – November 4, 2022

The city of Halifax is located on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet), and Passamaquoddy Peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1726. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations. We respect the histories, language, and cultures of First Nations, Metis, Inuit, and all First Peoples of Canada, whose presence continues to enrich our vibrant community.

We acknowledge the importance of this land to reaffirm our commitment and responsibility in improving relationships between Nations and improving our own understanding of local Indigenous peoples and their cultures.
