Indigenous Territories

We acknowledge that KPIRG is on unceded Indigenous land, in the South Fraser Region, belonging to the Coast Salish peoples. Unceded means that this land was never surrendered, relinquished or handed over in any way.

Based on our current knowledge, this includes the shared traditional territories of the Kwantlen, Musqueam, Katzie, Stó:lō, Semiahmoo, Tsleil-Waututh, and Tsawwassen First Nations. Today, most of BC remains unceded sovereign Native lands, over which neither the Canadian or BC governments have the legal or moral authority to govern.

Here at KPIRG, we are working towards better understanding how we can support Indigenous sovereignty as settlers on this land.

(* If we have it wrong or you know more information about whose land we’re on, please contact us at info@kpirg.ca. Thank you.)
