Beyond Land Acknowledgment

“Have you ever heard a land acknowledgment statement delivered at a conference, community gathering, festival, or concert? Indigenous land acknowledgment, or the practice of recognizing the Indigenous past, present, and future of a particular location, is growing in popularity. While popular, land acknowledgment unfortunately can be problematic. Instead of spending time on a land acknowledgment statement, try creating an action plan. Your action plan will highlight the concrete steps you plan to take to support Indigenous people into the future. Watch our video to learn how to create an action plan that’s specific, accurate, and impactful.”
