Land Acknowledgement

International School of Brooklyn respectfully acknowledges that our school inhabits the land of the Munsee Lenape people. The proper name of New York City is the Munsee word, Lenapehoking, which means “Land of the Lenape.” The Land where we nurture and affirm adventurers, leaders, and advocates rightfully belonged to the Lenapes.

This Living Land Acknowledgement honors and recognizes the Indigenous Peoples who have been dispossessed from the homelands and territories that many now continue to fight for, despite their forced displacement. We celebrate this place called Lenapehoking and honor the Indigenous Peoples who first loved it and cared for it. We honor the current Lenape Tribes and Leaders who are still here, still connected to the Land, who are still and have always been here stewarding the Land.
