We acknowledge that the Great Lakes region is the ancestral, traditional, and contemporary lands and waters of Indigenous nations, including the Anishinaabeg—the Three Fires Confederacy of Ojibwe, Odawa, and Bodéwadmi peoples. We also acknowledge our many more-than-human relatives, the original caretakers of our lands and waters, who call this region home, and have done so since time immemorial.
