Dear Friend,

Have you encountered a land acknowledgment before? Where a speaker or group leader recognizes the ongoing relationship between Indigenous people and the land on which a group takes place?

Have you wanted to learn more?

Join Rico Newman, Elder of the Choptico Band of Piscataway Conoy, as he acknowledges and thanks the land for its blessings and then teaches about what a land acknowledgment is, who “should” do them, why and how to do them, what it means to do a land acknowledgment well, and what not to do. This talk is geared at a non-Native audience but those with experience and expertise are welcome to contribute their own perspectives as well.

Thursday, November 17, 7-8:30 pm.

VIRTUAL. $10-15 suggested donation. Complimentary tickets available, email


I hope to see you there,

Eliza Cava

Director of Conservation
