The Land Between charity believes that reconciliation is not possible without equality between all parties involved, and therefore we feel that reconciliation is only made possible and meaningful when there is a restoration of the culture and capacity of the Indigenous Nations whose traditional territories we are so privileged to share. Furthermore, we firmly believe that First Nations are inherent leaders in caring for Turtle Island (North America), and that their connections to Creation and their related knowledge and practices are essential guideposts for Canadians, to navigate our future collective wellbeing.
We utilize a system of Two-Eyed seeing and emphasize Traditional Knowledge in all endeavours and projects. We have developed several learning resources for those wishing to further their understanding of place. We do not represent any First Nations or their territories, nor do we speak for any First Nation.

We have also put together a learning resource and guide on how development projects can and should involve First Nations planning, consultation, and engagement throughout the process. You can find it here.
