The Dawson Creek Literacy Society acknowledges that we are on Treaty 8 Territory and that all people from Northeastern BC are beneficiaries of Treaty 8. It encompasses the lands of the Cree, Saulteaux, Dene, and the Métis Nation. We respect and honour the Treaties that were made on all territories, we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we are committed to move forward in partnership with Indigenous Nations in the spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
