Land Acknowledgment

We would like to recognize and acknowledge that Red Bison works on the lands of the Peoria, Kaskaskia, Piankashaw, Wea, Miami, Mascoutin, Odawa, Sauk, Mesquaki, Kickapoo, Potawatomi, Ojibwe, and Chickasaw Nations. These lands were the traditional territory of these Native Nations prior to their forced removal; these lands continue to carry the stories of these Nations and their struggles for survival and identity.

As an environmental organization, it is our responsibility to acknowledge the role that environmentalism has played in the destruction of Native peoples and their land. Red Bison is committed to acting in a way that makes our community a place where Native persons feel included, respected, and in control of their own destiny.
