We Are BART. » Land Acknowledgement

Land Acknowledgement

 ”It is with gratitude and humility that we acknowledge that we are learning, speaking, and gathering on the ancestral homelands of the Mohican people who are the indigenous peoples of this land. Despite tremendous hardship in being forced from here, today their community resides in Wisconsin and is known as the Stockbridge-Munsee Community. 

We pay honor and respect to their ancestors past and present as we commit to building a more inclusive and equitable space for all. At BART, we recognize our complicity in colonialism and encourage our entire community to take action in restoring harm. As lifelong learners, it is our duty to remember and teach the past, so that we may not repeat it. Please take some time to learn about the original keepers of this land.”
