We acknowledge that we gather as Engineer Inclusion in Dallas, Texas, on the stolen land of the Kiikaapoi and Witchita 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 acknowledgements here, and search for the traditional stewards of the land where you live and work here.
