Land Acknowledgement

It is with gratitude and humility that we acknowledge that we are learning, speaking, hiking and gathering on the ancestral homelands of the Mohican people, the Indigenous people of this land. Despite tremendous hardship in being forced from here, today their community resides in Wisconsin and is known as the Stockbridge-Munsee Community. We pay honor and respect to their ancestors past and present as we commit to building a more inclusive and equitable space for all.
