Land Acknowledgment

Crane Trust acknowledges that we are in the homelands of the Pâri (Pawnee) and Očhéthi Šakówiŋ (Sioux) Peoples. Our regional work also involves the past, present, and future lands of the Ponca, Omaha, Cheyenne, Otoe-Missouria, Lakota, Arapaho, Dakota, Kaw, Iowa, Ho-Chunk (Winnebago) and Sac and Fox Peoples.
As a land-based conservation organization, we acknowledge that Indigenous Peoples have a vast and unique history here, have stewarded this land for generations, and continue to live and thrive here.
Conservation organizations like Crane Trust must work to maintain healthy habitats for plants, wildlife and all people. We offer our respect for the cultures of Indigenous Peoples, and for the example they set for us to care for the land for generations to come.
