We acknowledge that the vast territory upon which the Diocese of Quebec today stands includes the traditional lands of the Abenaki, Atikamekw, Haudenosaunee, Huron-Wendat, Innu, Malecite, Mi'kmaq, and Naskapi First Nations.
thousands of years before the arrival of Anglicans, these Indigenous peoples
sought to walk gently upon this land, in communion with their Creator. Many
offered assistance to the first European travellers to this territory and
shared their knowledge for survival in a hostile climate. In return they have
often been marginalized on their own traditional lands, subjected to cultural
imperialism, and generally disenfranchised as a people.
