We teach on the un-ceded and traditional homelands of the Lenni Lenape and Wappinger nation. As we work on these lands, we acknowledge the historical and continuing injustices that have forcibly excluded these people from their lands. We also acknowledge that colonialism and systemic injustices have given our organization and leadership unequal privilege to access these lands and the knowledge and skills we teach. These systemic injustices are not just in the past, but also continue to happen today for peoples of Indigenous, Black, Hispanic/Latine, and Asian descent.
The Rewilding School is committed to reparative actions that build true community around connection to the land for all people, especially those harmed by settler-colonialism.
