 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  An Indigenous Land Acknowledgement  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Bdote confluence of Minnesota and Mississippi rivers, Dakota sacred site

We at Living Justice Press acknowledge that the land we live and work on here in Minnesota rightfully belongs to the Dakota, Anishinaabe, and Ho-Chunk Peoples. Our ancestors stole this land from their ancestors through genocide. We benefit from the land, while the Dakota, Anishinaabe, and Ho-Chunk descendents do not.The institutionalized mass harms of white supremacy and settler colonialism continue, having terrorized and killed the Indigenous Peoples of the Americas and Africa for more than five centuries.

We stand with the Black Lives Matter movement that is now leading the struggle to fight these systems of racial oppression. And we stand with Indigenous Peoples who call for honoring treaties and returning stolen Native land. This stand is a first step in truth and reconciliation among our peoples.

The word “revoke” . . . means “to annul by recalling or taking back” or “to repeal” or “to rescind.” The Pope does have that capability, which the rest of us do not.

In 2007, I started writing a book entitled Harm-Dependent No More: Who Are We—Winners and Losers or Relatives? That was before the global financial collapse, before Obama, and before Trump. I wonder what the world will be like when I finally finish the book. —Denise  Breton     >>>>>> Read More
