About CAC NO

Welcome to Cenla’s Elite Studio & Cheer Team! We believe in the significance of acknowledging and honoring the Indigenous land on which we operate. This Land Acknowledgement Statement serves as a testament to our commitment to respect and appreciate the Indigenous communities whose histories and cultures we recognize.

Understanding the Importance of Land Acknowledgement

At Cenla’s Elite Studio & Cheer Team, we understand that acknowledging the traditional territories and Indigenous communities is an essential step towards reconciliation and building meaningful relationships. By recognizing the historical and ongoing presence of Indigenous peoples, we aim to create a more inclusive and respectful environment for all.

Recognizing Indigenous Land

The land on which Cenla’s Elite Studio & Cheer Team operates is situated in the traditional territories of the [Indigenous Community Name]. We pay our respects to their Elders, past and present, and extend our gratitude for their stewardship of this land throughout generations.

We also acknowledge that this land was obtained through colonial processes, often at the expense of Indigenous communities who were displaced and subjected to numerous injustices. This acknowledgement is a small step in our collective journey towards truth, justice, and reconciliation.

Our Commitment

Cenla’s Elite Studio & Cheer Team is committed to fostering an environment that nurtures cross-cultural understanding, respect, and collaboration. By acknowledging the traditional territories, cultures, and contributions of Indigenous peoples, we hope to create a space that embraces diversity and promotes inclusivity.

Engaging with Indigenous Communities

As part of our commitment, we actively seek opportunities to engage with Indigenous communities, organizations, and individuals. We strive to learn from their wisdom, experiences, and cultural practices, and to integrate this knowledge into our programs and activities.

Furthermore, we aim to provide ongoing support to Indigenous initiatives, events, and projects that empower and uplift Indigenous voices. We recognize the importance of amplifying these voices and working collaboratively towards healing and reconciliation.

Continued Learning and Growth

Cenla’s Elite Studio & Cheer Team understands that acknowledging the traditional territories is just the first step. We are committed to continuous learning and growth, both individually and as an organization, on the journey towards true understanding and respect for Indigenous rights, cultures, and histories.

We actively educate ourselves and our community about Indigenous issues, histories, and perspectives. By fostering an environment of empathy, compassion, and allyship, we aim to contribute to the broader efforts of reconciliation and the dismantling of systemic barriers faced by Indigenous peoples.

Join Us in Acknowledging the Land

We invite our studio members, staff, partners, and visitors to join us in acknowledging the traditional territories whenever we gather. By recognizing and respecting the ongoing significance of Indigenous communities, we hope to promote a collective commitment to create positive change and work towards reconciliation in all aspects of our lives.

Thank you for taking the time to read our Land Acknowledgement Statement. If you have any questions or suggestions on how we can further support these efforts, please reach out to us. Together, let's strive towards a more inclusive and harmonious future.
