Joel talks about acceptance & acknowledgement (0:39)

I think it’s simply an acknowledgement of – of Indigenous culture.  If – if the school took time to – to say that we are on such and such land, or if they – if there was – if there was just some sort of acknowledgment, I think.  And, you know, even if the teacher had said – and pulled me aside and said, “Oh, we know you’re Indigenous, this and that”, if there was just, I don’t know, like if they had accepted me, I think, there – if I’d been acknowledged I would have felt accepted.
