Not Ladylike is based out of Treaty 6 territory and is the homeland of Metis Nation 4. Many First Nations and Indigenous peoples have gathered here and their continued presence has enriched and built the place I am proud to call home. As I work to build a community here, I am actively aware of how we are in relationship with the land and the larger community of human and non-human beings. This land acknowledgement not only seeks to recognize Indigenous peoples impact on these lands, but to actively reject a colonialist view that the lands offer only a resource to be used and extracted. The land is a part of us, a part of me. I want to thank the land for providing a backdrop to my fondest memories. It is integral to my personal history, story and wellbeing. And therefore integral to the Not Ladylike Community. Through this Community I want to help other folks connect with each other as they connect with this space and time that we occupy. And I want to ensure that we steward the land so our children and their children and so on, have the opportunity to enjoy it as well.
