Native Land Acknowledgement

The Intercultural Leadership Institute (ILI) inherently honors the Indigenous lands of the colonized United States of America specifically by examining, Who We Are, Where We Are, How We Work, and Why This Matters; the four ILI Core Questions. We recognize that this land that extends into the beautiful Pacific Islands in Hawai’i, that reaches to the north to the resource rich soil of Alaska, to the lands that encompass Central North America or Turtle Island with islands that lay in the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico, are and have been stewarded and held sovereign, not by the European relatives that forced their colonial power, but by multi-national Indigenous relatives who have ancient lineages that were and are still tied to these sacred lands. We acknowledge this history and honor these ancient lineages as well as those who were stolen or made to flee from their sovereign land due to colonization, genocide, or war.

    Cease Fire Solidarity Statement

    The Intercultural Leadership Institute stands in solidarity with the Palestinian people and with all civilians who are caught in the midst of violence, colonialism, forced migration, and the cruel denial of access to basic human necessities like food, water, power, and shelter that will inevitably lead to their extermination if it persists. We are calling for an immediate ceasefire against the Palestinian people.

    We recognize that to step into intercultural leadership means boldly speaking up as artists and culture bearers to stand in solidarity with all people who face the brutality of white supremacy, colonialism, militarism, imperialism and other forms of systemic oppression, while following and taking the lead of those most impacted.

    Our ILI community calls for an immediate ceasefire against the Palestinian people.
