Acknowledgement and Commitment Statement

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND COMMITMENT STATEMENT

We acknowledge that the land on which The Muse is set is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe of Treaty #3, and the Métis people.

The Muse commits to embrace and live the values known as The Seven Grandfathers – respect, love, truth, bravery, wisdom, generosity and humility – values we all esteem. It is our commitment that we will, to the best of our ability, live out these values in our work and purposes so that we can build and strengthen relationships with Indigenous communities and individuals; represent their history and culture accurately and respectfully; involve their members in our work from a position of humility and an attitude of learning so that what we do and present here at the Museum and at the Art Centre will be honest and honouring.
