Solidarity & Recognition Statement to Indigenous Communities
Vantage Point’s office is located on the traditional and ancestral lands of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nations. Our team and our work span across the lands of 203 distinct First Nations. In their current state, the Vantage Point staff and Board are comprised of settlers who are grateful to be able to convene on these lands, 95% of which are recorded as unceded and 100% of which are blatantly stolen.
We recognize many Indigenous cultures’ connection between land, language, and spirituality and that the colonial government’s effective theft and genocide continue to impact Indigenous peoples to this day. We stand in solidarity with the anger, pain, and generational trauma felt throughout Indigenous communities today due to ongoing injustices such as the overdue discovery of children lost through residential school abuse and empty words of reconciliation.
We commit to learning how to improve our support for the organizations directly involved with Indigenous communities and individuals and to working with Indigenous-led organizations to decolonize our work. Finally, we thank the First Nations who have stewarded these lands since time immemorial
What is Vantage Point
