"The world is but one country, and mankind its citizens.” Bahá’u'lláh
The Bahá'í community has had, for a century and more, a long-standing commitment to embracing the role of Indigenous people in society. In 1916, before the Bahá'í community in Canada included Indigenous members, ‘Abdu’l- Bahá called on the Bahá'ís to “attach great importance to the indigenous population of America” because of the unique potential of those peoples to “enlighten the whole world.”
The Bahá'í community has grown to include Indigenous people among its membership since the 1940s and in its national leadership since the 1970s. Together, as one people, we will continue to walk the path that leads to greater unity, recognizing with every step how our shared, sacred values, teachings, and practices are inspired by the same Creator, such as the nobility of the human being, the wisdom of divine providence and creation, and the immense importance of valuing human lives in a manner in which every individual is considered the trust of the whole, and the unity of the collective can only be insured by giving due attention to justice.
It is because the best beloved of all things in the sight of God is justice, that we acknowledge the historic presence of the Komoks First Nation on its ancestral land, even as we are one human family, on one shared homeland.
