EDUCATION WHERE YOU LIVE

CCHE acknowledges that we are located on traditional, ancestral, and modern-day lands of Indigenous people. These lands were stolen by white settlers who forcibly pushed out Indigenous people. Despite attempts at erasure, the Ojibwe nation, and before them the Dakota and the Cree nations – and other Indigenous peoples from time immemorial – have persisted. We recognize that this Land Acknowledgement is but one step in unmasking systems of oppression. To read the full statement and learn more about our commitment to this work click here.
