Puente Theatre would like to acknowledge that for thousands of years the Coast Salish,

Nuu-chah-nulth, and Kwakwaka'wakw peoples have walked gently on and been the care-

takers of the territories of what we today call Vancouver Island. It is with great gratitude

that we acknowledge that we live, work, and create in the unceded territories of the 

Lək̓ʷəŋənWSÁNEĆ and Wyomilth peoples of the Coast Salish Nation.  As immigrants

to this land, we are infinitely grateful for the opportunity to do so, and we actively seek a

new relationship with the first peoples here, one based in honor and respect, and we thank

them for their hospitality.
