ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND COMMITMENT STATEMENT
We acknowledge that the land on which The Muse is set is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, territory covered by Treaty #3, signed in 1873, and the Treaty Adhesion signed by the Métis in 1875.
The Muse commits to embrace and live the values known as The Seven Grandfathers – respect, love, truth, bravery, wisdom, generosity and humility – values we all esteem. It is our commitment that we will, to the best of our ability, live out these values in our work and purposes so that we can build and strengthen relationships with Indigenous communities and individuals; represent their history and culture accurately and respectively; involve their members in our work from a position of humility and an attitude of learning so that what we do and present here at the Museum and at the Art Centre will be honest and honouring.
