Land Acknowledgement

Since 2017, TurF has been privileged to proudly build its community in sən̓aʔqʷ; the Indigenous name of the Kitsilano neighbourhood. We acknowledge these lands are on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

Sən̓aʔqʷ, prior to the arrival of European settlers, was a gathering space for commerce, social relationships, and cultural practices.  We acknowledge and pay respect to the people and traditions that have shaped the community and land that we are honoured to be situated on today.  We are determined to continue learning and bring light to the discriminatory and colonial practices that have had a lasting legacy.
