Treaty Land Acknowledgement
As members of the Dr. Anne Anderson community, we deeply respect the enduring legacy of Dr. Anne Anderson, a luminary figure whose life was devoted to safeguarding Indigenous cultural heritage and languages within the intricate fabric of Canadian history. Inspired by her example, we endeavour to follow her lead in advocating for the rights and well-being of all Indigenous people, and for the preservation of their cultures and traditions. We believe that by honouring her legacy, we can create a legacy of our own that is reflective of her values and ideals.
We acknowledge that we are on the Treaty Six territory, a land that numerous Indigenous people have called home for generations. We acknowledge the rich history, cultural heritage, and valuable contributions of the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis, Dene, and Nakota Sioux nations that have marked these lands for centuries. We are grateful and honoured to have the opportunity to live, learn, and work on this territory, and we pay our respects to all Indigenous people past, present, and emerging.
Ultimately, as members of this community, we hope to foster an environment of respect, empathy, and learning to allow Indigenous voices to be heard within the Dr. Anne Anderson community. We are dedicated to recognizing the past, understanding the present, and working collaboratively towards a better future for all.

When I stepped into Dr. Anne Anderson High School for the first time, I took in the moment and felt a sense of honour in having the opportunity to serve this community. As I looked around, I noticed that written on wooden poles of the tipi standing majestically in the foyer are cree words that define the legacy of our namesake, Dr. Anne Anderson.
Anne Anderson was a dedicated author and teacher who was instrumental in preserving the cree language and promoting Métis heritage in Alberta and Canada. She would go on to write more than 90 books on the cree language, history and traditions, and in the early 1980s, she established the Dr. Anne Anderson Native Heritage and Cultural Centre which offered cree language courses. In 1991, she received the Order of Canada for her work in preserving the cree culture. With a profound appreciation for education, Dr. Anne (as she was fondly called) was especially known for the kindness and compassion she showed all of her students. She often spoke about the need to respect all cultures and learn from one another.
PUKOSEYIMOWIN - HOPE
Schools are places of hope. Together, we opened the doors of Dr. Anne Anderson High School to our students, their families and our community. Our school is a safe, welcoming and inclusive place where our connections with one another and our greater community are underpinned by kindness, compassion and respect. We are relentless in our efforts to provide every student with a high quality educational experience that prepares them for their futures. Our students have endless opportunities to develop their interests, passions and leadership skills through school initiatives, teams, and extra-curricular offerings.
Hope is about dwelling in possibility and dreaming for the future. Leveraging the informative voices of our youth, we are creating a school where students thrive, feel pride, and leave a legacy for those who follow.
NANASKOWMOWIN - THANKFULNESS
Opening our new school has been a privilege. As you walk in the doors of our school for the first time, and as you stand beneath the giant tipi structure, it is our hope that you also will feel thankful for the opportunity to be part of this special beginning and to be carrying forward your own and Dr. Anderson’s legacy.
With appreciation for your support and this opportunity to walk alongside and learn with you,
Lisa Wright, Principal
