In order to further our right relationship with the land and the people who continue to tend and hold it sacred, we acknowledge that many of us are creating on the lands of Indigenous as well as in majority Black and Latine communities.
Stormfire Productions is incorporated on the lands of the Nacotchtank, Pamunkey, Piscataway, Powhatan, Saponi, Seneca, Tauxenent, Tutelo and others. Our leadership also works on the lands of the Coast Salish people, the traditional home of all tribes and bands within the Duwamish, Suquamish, Tulalip and Muckleshoot nations. We acknowledge and respect the traditions and communities we work with now and in the future, and offer that same respect to those communities we may not yet know and are committed to learning. We pay respects to their elders past and present and honor their truths.
This statement is a beginning. It may evolve over time as we learn. Land acknowledgment is only a start in applying justice towards our BIPOC siblings. Stormfire Productions also commits to including BIPOC artists and stories in our work and to support those artists and communities through platforming and resources. We will continue building relationships with all marginalized people.
No justice, no peace.
