Emerson Land Acknowledgement Ceremony
On Friday May 6, 2022, the Emerson community hosted a Land Acknowledgment Ceremony that recognized the ancestral land of the Ho-Chunk People upon which our school sites. This plaque will be displayed on the outside of our building soon!
It is with great respect that our school acknowledges and celebrates the inherent sovereignty of the Ho-Chunk Nation and the 11 Indigenous First Nations within what is now referred to as the State of Wisconsin. The land you are standing on is the sacred ancestral land of the Ho-Chunk People. Our school will continue to grow and build upon our partnerships with the Ho-Chunk Nation and all First Nations.
All our Emerson students came to the ceremony, and we are so grateful to the Vigue family and Isa Saiz for coming and sharing with our community about the significance of the day.
Finally, deep appreciation to the organizer of the day’s event, Caroline Osgood our school social worker.
