Land Acknowledgement:
The Diefenbunker was built on the traditional unceded, unsurrendered Territory of the Anishinaabe Algonquin People, whose presence here reaches back to time immemorial.

The Diefenbunker Museum acknowledges the ongoing legacy of harm to Indigenous people in Canada and the adverse impacts of the Cold War on Indigenous communities. The museum is committed to contributing to the Calls to Action set out in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, specifically numbers 67 to 70 related to museums and archives. We endeavour to increase the representation of important Indigenous histories, perspectives, and languages in our Cold War content, and to ensure respectful interpretation in our spaces. We are continually working to develop close and collaborative relationships with Indigenous communities, whether locally, provincially, or nationally.

We hope you join us in learning from our past as we build our collective future.
