Land Acknowledgment

The Flint River watershed lies within the ancestral, traditional, and contemporary lands of the Anishnaabeg – Three Fires Confederacy of the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi peoples. The FRWC offices reside on land ceded in the 1807 Treaty of Detroit.

The Flint River Corridor Alliance offers this land acknowledgment to affirm Indigenous sovereignty, history, and experiences, which include genocide, removal, and forced relocation from these lands.
