To unite our island and coastal community while preserving and protecting its unique natural environment, supporting community involvement and safety, and engaging with relevant organizations to help us achieve the vision of the Association.
To preserve this unique natural habitat for generations to come.
The Board of the Pointe au Baril Islanders Association, in recognition of the importance of truth-telling and reconciliation with our Indigenous neighbours,
will use a land acknowledgement at the opening of our meetings and on Board minutes and communication, as follows:
The Board of the Pointe au Baril Islanders Association acknowledges that our cottages are located in the traditional and treaty territory of the Shawanaga First Nation, which belongs to the larger Anishnabek Nation and which stretches across much of Ontario, east along the Prairies and along the northern shores of all the Great Lakes. The Anishnabek Nation is comprised of peoples of the Algonquin, Saulteaux, Anishnabe (Ojibway), Odawa, Chippewa nations as well as others.
We acknowledge the rights of the Anishnabek as legally recognized in the Robinson-Huron Treaty of 1850, the foundation upon which the sovereign peoples of these lands, waters and air would build a common relationship. I express my gratitude and respect to the Anishnabek for their relationship to nature and their care for this place. I am committed to listening, learning and understanding what role I can play in honouring these relationships in how I conduct myself today and every day.
