Land Acknowledgment

We respectfully acknowledge that the University of New Brunswick and downtown Fredericton stand on the unsurrendered and unceded traditional Wolastoqey (WOOL-US-TOOK-WAY) land. 
 
The lands of Wabanaki (WAH-BAH-NAH-KEE) people are recognized in a series of Peace and Friendship Treaties to establish an ongoing relationship of peace, friendship and mutual respect between equal nations. 
 
The river that runs by our university and in downtown Fredericton is known as Wolastoq (WOOL-LUSS-TOOK), along which live Wolastoqiyik (WOOL-US-TOO-GWEEG) – the people of the beautiful and bountiful river. Wolastoq (WOOL-LUSS-TOOK) is also called the St. John River.
