Land Acknowledgment and Why? with Marisa Page
Learning Lab

Thursday, December 2, 2021 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Creating a space for Land Acknowledgement is becoming increasingly popular within the nonprofit arena and the public sector. We have seen land acknowledgements in public speeches given by poet laureates, we have seen Secretary of the Interior, Deb Haaland, give them in her speeches, and we have seen land acknowledgement in some of the meetings we participate in.

"As an enrolled citizen of the Pawnee Nation of Oklahoma and descendant of the Ponca and Comanche Nations, land acknowledgment means a lot more to me. It means that the people who participate in the acknowledgement of land become a supporter of the Indigenous people, organizations, and sovereign governments, and recognize the historical traumas, genocide, and forced removal of Indigenous peoples from their ancestral homes. It means that those entities appreciate, respect, and value the traditions and cultures seeded within the lands you live, work, and stand on. Lastly, it means you will do your best to protect and honor the land, and become an ally to those who have connection to the land."

This facilitation will cover some of the historical and contemporary issues that face Native peoples and why land acknowledgement is important and how we can commit to be an ally and steward of our beautiful land.  “When we talk about land, land is part of who we are. It’s a mixture of our blood, our past, our current, and our future. We carry our ancestors in us, and they’re around us. As you all do.” Mary Lyons (Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe). This session will examine the significance of acknowledging Indigenous land and how to write an authentic and meaningful statement.
