The faith communities and organizations below have agreed to partner in this project. We use the term “partner” rather than “sponsor” because this is an ongoing project rather than a single event.

As partners we are expressing an intention to build ongoing relationships with our Native neighbors in the region – and to follow their lead in working together to redress the enormous damage inflicted on their peoples by 400 years of colonization.
