Language changes. It is important to keep learning key terms and evolving our vocabulary so that we can contribute to a more kind and inclusive world.
We acknowledge that we gather as Engineer Inclusion in Orange, Texas, on the unceded land of the Ishak (Atakapa), Koasati (Coushatta), and Alabama Peoples. Colonizers excised these indigenous groups from their traditional land through forced removal. We honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations. We invite you to learn more about land acknowledgments here and search for the traditional stewards of the land where you live and work here.
