GECDSB Land Acknowledgement

- creating a visual interpretation-

November 4th – 8th is Treaty Recognition Week in Ontario and the GECDSB has planned a special learning event to highlight the relationship, based on mutual respect, between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians.

Our recently approved Land Acknowledgement is an important aspect of the relationship between the GECDSB and the local Indigenous communities.

From Monday, November 4th – Wednesday, November 6th acclaimed artist Moses Lunham will be working with students at West Gate Public School (1275 Campbell, Windsor)  to create a visual representation of our Land Acknowledgement. When complete, it will be 12 feet long and travel to schools throughout the Board to help share some understanding of the history of this area and the relevance of the Land Acknowledgement.

​For more information contact Public Relations Officer Scott Scantlebury @ 519-255-3200 ext. 10224 or 519-995-5797.
