  • Acknowledgement of Ancestral Lands Statement

  • This statement was developed by the MPHA Health Equity Committee and its partners, for use at all MPHA gatherings. Click here for additional information.

  • We ask that you take a moment to honor and acknowledge that we are on the ancestral homelands of the Dakota and Anishinaabe. Indigenous people have a long-standing history and connection to the land since time immemorial, and are the original stewards of lands and waters. Many American Indians were forcibly exiled from their lands because of aggressive and persistent settler colonialism and U.S. Governmental policies, but they persevered. We make this acknowledgment to honor the Dakota and Anishinaabe people, ancestors and descendants, as well as the land itself.
