Land Acknowledgment

Eighth Street Mennonite Church adopted a land acknowledgment statement in March 2021 following a three-year process of education and participatory activities.

The statement was drafted and revised in consultation with local Bodéwadmi (Potawatomi) leaders.  A Pokagon Band artist, Aaron Martin, created a turtle image with indigenous symbols to accompany the statement.

The Land Acknowledgment Team guides the congregation in advancing the commitments of the statement.

  • Acknowledging the wrongs of the past
  • Building relationships with Potawatomi people
  • Joining with them in caring for this land and all creation

Land Acknowledgment Team 2023: Julia Gingrich, Don Paetkau, Brian Miller, Barry Johnson, Eileen Saner, Janeen Bertsche Johnson.
