Acknowledgment of Traditional Coast Salish Territory
The City of Delta is situated on Coast Salish territory, which includes the Tsawwassen First Nation (TFN), Musqueam Indian Band and other Salishan language groups. In the 2021/2022 school year, there were approximately 660 students who have self-identified as being of Indigenous ancestry. There are approximately 50 students from the Tsawwassen First Nation attending Delta schools. It is the District’s hope that as the curriculum becomes more embedded with Indigenous culture and teachings and more fully reflects and represents the society in which we live, students will choose to self-identify because of a developing pride and confidence in their culture. All children should be proud of who they are and where they come from.
