Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that the monthly meetings of Southeastern Yearly Meeting are on the unceded lands of many different indigenous peoples.

In what is now Florida, coastal Georgia, and South Carolina, the original inhabitants were indigenous peoples of the Southeastern Woodlands.  Early peoples in this area were hunter-gatherers, who shifted over time to growing corn, squash and beans for a large part of their food. Well before European invasion, indigenous peoples of these lands– the Timucua (Tee-MOO-qua), Calusa (ca LOO-sa), Tequesta (tuh-KES-tuh), Ais (ah-EES), Jaega (YaY-ga), and others– had well developed trade networks, refined ceramic and metal working techniques, and other visual arts traditions. In Nicaragua, Managua Worship Group meets on the traditional territories of the Chorotega (chore-oh-TAY-ga). Invading Europeans decimated these pre-contact peoples through disease, violence, enslavement, and forced removal, and claimed their land for European settlement.

We acknowledge the Seminole (SEM-in-ol) and Miccosukee (mick-uh-SOO-kee) Tribes, who continue as peoples, and as protectors of South Florida’s land and water. Their fierce and sustained resistance to European invasion and the physical and cultural processes of colonization and land theft continue to this day.

We acknowledge that Native individuals of many nations and peoples live throughout this region today.

We in Southeastern Yearly Meeting have committed ourselves to an ongoing process of decolonization. We repudiate the Doctrine of Discovery, commit ourselves to a deeper understanding of Quaker involvement in the genocide of indigenous peoples, and seek way forward in deepening commitment and solidarity with Native peoples.
