We stand on the homelands of the Wahpekute and other Bands of the Dakota Nation.

We honor with gratitude the people who have stewarded the land throughout the generations and their ongoing contributions to this region. We acknowledge the ongoing injustices that we have committed against the Dakota Nation, and we wish to interrupt this legacy, beginning with acts of healing and honest storytelling about this place.

Statement approved by the City of Northfield November 17, 2020 thanks to the work of the Northfield Human Rights Commission and our organization
