NASBR and our Winnipeg Local Hosts acknowledge that Winnipeg is located on Treaty One Territory, which is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Dakota, Cree, Oji-Cree, and Dene Peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation. We acknowledge that Winnipeg’s water is sourced from Shoal Lake 40 First Nation. In addition to learning about the latest bat research, we hope NASBR 2023 participants will take advantage of opportunities to learn about Canada’s colonial legacy and long path towards reconciliation, as well as attempts to decolonize fundamental and applied scientific research.

Our logo artist is Peatr Thomas, a multidisciplinary Ininew and Anishinaabe self-taught full-time visual artist from the Pimicikamak and Miskooseepi territories located near the heart of Turtle Island. In his role as an artist and youth workshop facilitator, he shares passed down knowledge, traditional teachings, culture and the healing process
