The University of Manitoba campuses are located on original lands of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation. I respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, I acknowledge the harms of the past, and I dedicate myself to move forward in partnership with Indigenous Peoples in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
