Updated ARNM Land Acknowledgement

By Kahla Evans posted 25 days ago


The Association of Regulated Nurses of Manitoba is committed to learning from, and working with Indigenous peoples towards reconciliation.

ARNM supports land acknowledgements in our meetings, both in-person and virtually, as well as in our professional development and training sessions, including Talk Tuesday.

We are proud to share our updated land acknowledgment:

ARNM is the professional voice of nurses in the traditional territories of the Anishinaabeg (Ojibwe), Ininew (Cree), Oji-Cree, Dakota, Dene, Inuit and Métis Nations.

We express our sincere gratitude for the welcome provided to settlers and newcomers over the last 250 years and acknowledge past and present harms, and the systemic discrimination Indigenous peoples still experience in the health system.

Moving forward, we recognize the spirit and intent of all treaties signed in what is now Manitoba – to share and care for the land and peoples together for as long as the sun shines, grass grows and rivers flow.  We are committed to working with Indigenous peoples to decolonize systems and improve health outcomes.
