I am working and living on the unceded ancestral lands historically cared for by the Kiickaapoi (Kickapoo), Osage, Kansa, Očeti Šakówiŋ, Wyandot, and the Otoe-Missouria. In support of the original stewards of this land, I pay an annual membership and make monthly contributions to the Kansas City Indian Center<https://kcindiancenter.org/>, a multi-purpose social service agency for American Indians on the land that is now known as Kansas City. Please consider ways in which you can meaningfully acknowledge and support the Indigenous peoples of the land that you occupy.
