Indigenous Peoples' Day 2021

Indigenous Peoples Day 2021

In honor of Indigenous Peoples' Day, we want to acknowledge that we gather on traditional land of Mohawk People- past and present, and honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have kept it throughout the generations. This calls us to commit to continuing to learn how to be better stewards of the land we inhabit as well.
