NAIT releases land acknowledgement video

In order to relay the traditional land acknowledgement in a different format, the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology has created a land acknowledgement video. The video includes an honour song performed by NAIT cultural adviser Lonny Potts and his son, Muskwa and features a reading of the acknowledgement by people from a variety of cultural backgrounds. This reading is posed to be symbolic of how people must come together to pursue reconciliation. “It’s a different way for people to absorb the information, which is good,” said NAIT Aboriginal liaison specialist Camille Louis. “It needs to be fresh.” The video is available for students and staff to use at events.
