Truth & Reconciliation For Learner Success Toolkit 

Educators and FSD staff can use this tool on their own or as a group to inform their professional learning. They can also use these tools and resources with their students while integrating foundational knowledge of First Nation, Métis and Inuit peoples and advancing Truth & Reconciliation in their school contexts.

Students, families, and communities can use the tools and resources within to build their personal knowledge about Truth & Reconciliation and gain a greater appreciation for Indigenous culture, wisdom and ways of knowing.


Foothills School Division Land Acknowledgement

In the spirit of reconciliation, the Foothills School Division acknowledges and thanks the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy and the first peoples of southern Alberta including the Siksika, Piikani, Kainai, Tsuut’ina, and Stoney Nakoda First Nations. This land is also the proud homeland of the Métis Nation. 

We take this opportunity to acknowledge the spirit, life, and lessons that this land has shared with us over past generations and honour the spirit, life, and lessons that this land will continue to share with us in the coming seasons of life and learning. 

We respect the stories that our ancestors told of this place and the wisdom that lives in the history of this land. 

We thank Mother Earth for the generous gifts she has provided us to sustain our bodies, minds, hearts, and souls. 

In this way, we recognize the land as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on. 

Let us go forward in a good way. 

All my relations.
