THE PATH TO RECONCILIATION
149MKM is fully committed to advancing the path of Reconciliation in a meaningful and impactful way. We understand that Reconciliation is a collective effort that involves all members of society and demands the willingness to change our mindsets and behaviours. Through our actions, projects, and partnerships, we aim to contribute to the process of Reconciliation and work toward an equitable future.
Here's how we approach this commitment:
1. PARTNERSHIP & COLLABORATION
We actively seek partnerships and engage in collaborative relationships with Indigenous Peoples, communities and businesses. We understand the importance of working together, listening to and respecting Indigenous voices, and ensuring that decisions are made collectively and inclusively.
2. RECONCILIATION EDUCATION & AWARENESS
We are committed to ongoing education and raising awareness about Reconciliation within our organization and among our stakeholders. We promote understanding of the history, experiences, and challenges faced by Indigenous Peoples, and we actively support initiatives that promote Reconciliation.
3. RESPECT FOR LAND AND ENVIRONMENT
We recognize the deep connection Indigenous Peoples have with their traditional lands and the importance of environmental stewardship. We strive to integrate sustainable practices and respect Indigenous land rights and traditional territories in our operations. We aim to minimize our environmental impact and work collaboratively with Indigenous communities to protect and preserve the land for future generations.
4. MMIWG, UNDRIP
Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG), United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), and Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) are essential issues and frameworks that have significant relevance for 149MKM. We aim to learn more about addressing the issues of MMIWG, implementing the principles of UNDRIP, and supporting the reconciliation process outlined by the TRC.
