ETRINGER: "At this time, I'd like to recognize this land. Iowa is a place that was highly affected by genocide and colonization due to the rich and fertile soil that lies between the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. Before our ancestors were murdered and cleared out of this area, they farmed and lived on this land in a way that humans, the four legged, the plant and tree people, the fish people and Mother Earth all benefited from. The Meskwaki managed to survive the genocide and remain here today."
