We want to acknowledge that our community rests on the traditional lands of the Ponca, Omaha, Winnebago, Dakota and Oto Peoples past and present, and honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations. This calls us to commit to work in partnership with our Indigenous Peoples, continuing to learn how to be better stewards of the land we now inhabit as well.
