Land Acknowledgment

We acknowledge that ArtReach St. Croix occupies land that is the ancestral home of the Wahpekute people and the larger Očhéthi Šakówiŋ – Seven Fires Council – alliance of Dakota tribes. The Dakota people today are here and maintain deep connections to this land and its stories despite genocide and forced relocation.

ArtReach St. Croix will build and strengthen relationships with Indigenous people who currently or in the future call the St. Croix Valley home. ArtReach looks to amplify artists’ voices and draws on the arts to connect communities to their stories, and to each other.
