We acknowledge that the Ojibwe Horse Society operates on unceded and Treaty land throughout Turtle Island, the traditional territory of many First Nations and of the Indigenous horse of the boreal forests.

The Ojibwe Horse Society acknowledges Indigenous peoples have had a relationship throughout time with the horse breed known variously as the Ojibway Pony, the Ojibwe Horse, and the Lac La Croix Indigenous Horse. We will strive to centre the voices and interests of Indigenous peoples who wish to re-establish and strengthen their relationship to this breed.

We prefer the term “Caretaker” to “Owner” when talking about human relationships to individual horses. This is done out of respect for traditional Indigenous views of these horses as spirit animals and helpers.
