Land Acknowledgment

The Latino Policy Forum is based in Chicago, Illinois, on lands that will always belong to its Indigenous tribes, including the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi Nations (the Council of the Three Fires), as well as the Miami, Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Sac, Fox, Kickapoo, and Illinois Nations. The Forum recognizes and uplifts these original guardians of the territory. Chicago is home to one of the largest urban Native American communities in the United States, who still practice traditions and take care of land and waterways. Without these people and their continued stewardship, we would not be able to call this place home.
