Bear Waters Gathering and Agilec would like to honour the “Dish with One Spoon” understanding of shared lands. The Dish symbolizes Mother Earth and that we are to share equally the life gifts she offers us. The Spoon symbolizes that we as humans are to do no harm to our Mother or to one another.  We offer this acknowledgement in respect for our renewed relations with each other; we remind ourselves that lands were not divided into sections because no one has the right to tell another they have to stay on one side or the other of our mother. There are many today that do not understand this way of living, so we will share this acknowledgement in hope that one day territorial acknowledgements will not be necessary.

We acknowledge all of our Ancestors by recognizing the attempted erasure, relocation, and destruction of the traditional Indigenous way of life. We acknowledge that our trainings will be held on the traditional territories and settlements of many Indigenous nations including the Anishinaabeg (Ojibwe, Odawa, Potawatomi), First Peoples of the Three Fires Confederacy; The Haudenosaunee (Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, Seneca  and Tuscarora), First Peoples of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy; Wyandotte (Bear, Deer, Rock, and Cord), the First Peoples of the Wendake Confederacy; and the Metis Nation. We would also like to thank the Four Legged, the Swimmers, the Flyers, the Crawlers, our Mother Earth, and all that Creation has done by performing their original purpose. We would like to thank the Creator for all the good things we have been provided and commit to honouring all by walking gently and protecting our future generations.
