Land Acknowledgement
We collectively acknowledge that The Link is located on the traditional, ancestral, and contemporary lands of Indigenous people. The Link resides on land that was cared for and called home by the Dakota people and other Native peoples from time immemorial. Ceded by the Dakota in 1805 through a fake treaty, this land holds great historical, spiritual, and personal significance for its original stewards, the Native nations and peoples of this region. We recognize and continually support and advocate for the sovereignty of the Native nations in this territory and beyond. By offering this land acknowledgement, we affirm tribal sovereignty and will work to hold this organization and ourselves as individuals accountable to Native peoples and nations.
