The Board of Directors of Tusarnaarniq Sivumut Association - Music for the Future acknowledges the Indigenous Peoples of all the lands and the importance of the lands, which we each call home. In particular, we want to acknowledge that the land on which

 we do most of our work is in Nunavut, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Inuit. We do this to reaffirm our commitment and responsibility to improving relationships between nations and improving our own understanding of local Indigenous peoples

 and their cultures, and to our collective commitment to make the promise and the challenge of Truth and Reconciliation real in our communities. From coast to coast to coast, we acknowledge the ancestral and unceded territory of all the Inuit,

 Métis, and First Nations people that call this land home.
