Hi Viviana,

I appreciate you sharing a voice recording along with your draft acknowledgement text - hearing your voice added a stronger sense of personal presence for me. 

I also really like the clarity and expression of gratitude in your land acknowledgement statement: "I now work at the University of the Fraser Valley and I would like to acknowledge that UFV is located on the traditional and unceded territory of the Stó:lō People. I am grateful to work, live and learn on their traditional lands. A thought for future versions of your land acknowledgement, I suggest starting with this statement in order to keep the main focus on recognition and respect for the Indigenous land and people where you are and then share your own cultural self-location.
