Relationships First strives for respectful relationships, searching for collective healing and true reconciliation with the original peoples of this land. As such we acknowledge that we are located on the ancestral homelands of the Beothuk, and that the island of Newfoundland is the ancestral homeland of the Mi'kmaq and Beothuk. We also recognize the Inuit of Nunatsiavut and NunatuKavut and the Innu of Nitassinan, and their ancestors, as the original peoples of Labrador.
