Land Acknowledgement


Hawai’i Land Acknowledgement

We would like to acknowledge that her Queen Lil’uokalani yielded the Hawai’i Kingdom and these territories under duress and protest to the United States to avoid bloodshed of her people. We also recognize that Hawai’i remains an illegally occupied state of America.
This acknowledgement honors the land we stand on and guides the way in which we speak and act. We have the utmost respect for the Kupuna of the past and present and to the indigenous people of Hawai’i.
Jenelle is a proud member of Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN). Today, we are known as the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN). We signed Treaty 8 in Fort Chipewyan, in 1899, acknowledging our inherent and cultural connection with the land. We continue to exercise our treaty and cultural rights and maintain our identity as K’ai Tailé Dené, people of the land of the willow.
