Rothesay will now begin all of its council meetings with the reading of an Indigenous land acknowledgment.

Former lieutenant-governor Graydon Nicholas was asked to create a land acknowledgment for the town.

Nicholas was on hand at last night’s monthly council meeting to read it for the first time.

“It’s a pleasure for me to have been asked to do this and to read out the initial one,” Nicholas, a member of the Tobique First Nation, told council.

The land acknowledgment recognizes that Rothesay exists on the traditional lands of the Wolastoqiyik / Wəlastəkewiyik / Maliseet and Mi’kmaq / Mi’kmaw whose ancestors along with the Passamaquoddy / Peskotomuhkati Tribes / Nations signed Peach and Friendship Treaties with the British Crown in the 1700s.
