Land & Water Acknowledgement

Lake Park- view of Lake Michigan from the bluff

We respectfully acknowledge that the land and waterways encompassed by the Milwaukee County Park System are on the ancestral homeland of Indigenous People, including the Potawatomi, Ho-Chunk, and Menominee. We recognize that they were forcefully removed from their lands along the shores of Michigami, North America’s largest system of freshwater lakes, where the Milwaukee, Menomonee, and Kinnickinnic rivers meet and where the people of Wisconsin’s sovereign nations remain present. In honoring the ancestral owners and stewards of these lands and waterways, we strive to be respectful stewards.
