Acknowledging the Traditional Indigenous Territory in Worship

2 pp
This brief guide is intended to help congregations and bodies of the church incorporate an Acknowledgement of Territory into their gatherings.

Acknowledging the territory where we gather and the people who have traditionally called it home for thousands of years is a way to continue to live out the church’s Apologies to the First Peoples of North America. The acknowledgement supports our calls to others to pay respect to Indigenous peoples. It is also one way the church can work toward right relations—by repudiating the Doctrine of Discovery that assumed the land was empty when European explorers, traders, and settlers first came.
