Join us in paying land tax
As the Native Governance Center states, it is important to “go beyond land acknowledgment” to take action to support Indigenous communities. Last year, The Improve Group began estimating our annual property tax (our share of the property tax since we rent part of a building) and paying this amount ($6,000 for 2021) to the Santee Sioux Nation in acknowledgement that we are on Wahpekute land. We invite our neighbors to do the same.
Our latest newsletter features Part II of our interview with Kameron Runnels, Vice Chairman of the Santee Sioux Nation, which is currently the home to many descendants of the Wahpekute Band of the Dakota Nation, on whose land our office is located. We then provide an update on our rescheduled Open House Event and announce an exciting advancement for IGer Sara McGarraugh!
