Land acknowledgement - toward right relationship with Native Peoples
Spirit, open our hearts
Guide us toward right relationship with Native Peoples
We seek to honor all Native Peoples of this land
...but our list is surely incomplete and flawed.
The Native population was in a state of flux for centuries. Groups were given different names by other tribes, white settlers and the US government. Maps and other sources identify “nations”, “tribes”, “clans”, “communities” and “bands” differently, and make differing claims about them.
This listing attempts to cover WI, MN, the UP, and ND, and to honor both historical and contemporary realities.
We apologize for any errors.
