We recognize that we are on unceded Algonquin territory and that we all must work together in respectful, just relationship with one another and with our mother earth and all her inhabitants.

All My Relations means that you recognize everything as alive and elemental to your being. There is nothing that matters less than anything else. By virtue of its being, all things are vital, necessary and apart of the grand whole, because unity cannot exist where exclusion is allowed to happen. This is the great teaching of this statement.

…When a speaker makes this statement it’s meant as recognition of the principles of harmony, unity and equality. It’s a way of saying that you recognize your place in the universe and that you recognize the place of others and of other things in the realm of the real and the living. In that, it is a powerful evocation of truth… In its solemnity it is meant as a benediction… This phrase, this articulation of spirit, is a clarion call to consciousness.”

-Richard Wagamese, from Kamploops Daily News
