Soaring Eagle Nature School (SENS)
We recognize and honour that we are on unceded and stolen Native land. This includes the territories of the Musqueam, Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), Kwitwetlem, Stó:lo, Qayqayt, Katzie, and Kwantlen nations. By acknowledging this, and acknowledging the privilege that those of us who are settlers have on this land, we wish to take steps to stop the further perpetuation of colonization of people and the land.
At Soaring Eagle Nature School (SENS), we recognize that the work of nature connection is built upon stolen Native land, as well as the stolen labour of Indigenous, Black and People of Colour. We recognize that systemic injustice exists and that we have a responsibility to work toward reparations and equity in resources and nature-based programming.
We are aware of how deeply ingrained colonization and imperialism is in our everyday existence. We strive to create a workplace that is anti-oppressive, queer affirming, non-patriarchal, and diverse in culture as well as individual background. As mentors/people we need to be continually working on decolonizing ourselves and forming solid, deeply rooted and nourishing, wholesome relationships with each other and with all beings on this land.
