Twin Cities In Motion acknowledges that its events run on the traditional, ancestral, and contemporary homelands of the Dakota People, as well as lands inhabited by the Anishinaabe and other Tribal Nations.
Our organization recognizes that legacies of violence, epidemic, coercion, displacement, migration, settlement, and genocide have brought all of us to the current moment of land inhabitance.
Sacred sites and landscape features important to Native life and culture have been important to Twin Cities In Motion events, including:
• Bde Maka Ska
• Bde Uman … (Lake Harriet)
• Mni-haha Wak-padan … (Minnehaha Creek)
• Owamni-yomni … (St. Anthony Falls)
• Wakpa Thanka … (the Mississippi River)
Within the context of this legacy, we intend this acknowledgement to be a commitment for our organization and an invitation for our participants to understand, respect, and support Indigenous People and this land we share and enjoy.
