Acknowledging the History and Legacy of Colonialism

A Story of My Growing Courage to Repair the World

Hello, I have something I’d like to do that is new for me.

Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz’s “An Indigenous People’s History of the United States.” provides beautiful maps that overlay traditional and treaty territories with current maps. Views of land ownership vary drastically from many tribal nations and the colonial structures of land boundaries.

I want to acknowledge that we are on stolen and broken treaty land of various indigenous peoples. Please let us take a moment to honor and appreciate the Comanche, Wichita, and Osage Nations.
