Manitoba Horse Council Inc. acknowledges that we operate on the original land and gathering place of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples and on the homeland of the Métis Nation. We respect the Treaties that were made on these lands, we acknowledge the harms and mistakes of the past, and we strive to move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration. Every time we acknowledge this truth, we have an invitation and an opportunity to reflect on what we do and the actions we can take to make Manitoba a better place for everyone who lives here.
