 Land Acknowledgement

 
 
We respectfully recognize the Council of the Three Fires: The Odawa, Ojibwe, and Potawatomi Nations, and the Illinois Confederacy: The Peoria and Kaskaskia Nations, who have stewarded this land throughout the generations.  Many other nations including the Miami, Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Fox, and Sac peoples also call this region home. Indigenous people continue to live in this area and celebrate their traditional teachings and lifeways. We acknowledge that we are on occupied land that was forcibly taken from its original owners.  And we affirm that while we cannot change history, we can work for justice and that justice begins with recognition and acknowledgment.
