I [We] acknowledge that the lands on which the British Columbia Institute of Agrologists are gathered are on the traditional and unceded territories of the Secwepemc Nation, including the territory of Tk’emlups te Secwepemc.  

I [We] would like to expand that acknowledgment to all Indigenous Nations within the province from the home of the Taku River Tlingit (ta-koo river tling-get) and Tahltan (tall-tan) in the far northwest to the Ktunaxa (too-nah-ha) people in the southeast region.

Agrologists have worked together with Indigenous peoples since the profession was recognized in 1947. We share the common goal of respect for the land and the resources it can provide and we recognize our duty to foster meaningful relationships as we help sustain it.
