Royal Roads University acknowledges that the campus is
located on the traditional lands of the Xwsepsum (Esquimalt) and Lkwungen
(Songhees) ancestors and families who have lived here for thousands of years.
This land has been part of the fabric of the life of
Indigenous communities long before Hatley Castle was built, and it will be long
into the future. It is with gratitude that we now learn and work here, where
the past, present and future of Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, faculty
and staff come together.
