Vertical Harvest Land Acknowledgement (Jackson, WY)

Sunset Greenhouse

We at Vertical Harvest recognize and honor the original Indigenous Peoples of the land that we are now living and working on. The land on which this building stands is part of the ancient homeland and traditional hunting, gathering and ceremonial territory of the Arapaho, Cheyenne, Crow, Shoshone and Ute peoples. Other Native American tribes that passed through and honored these Wyoming lands were the Bannock, Lakota, Comanche, Dakota, Kiowa and Pawnee. We recognize, honor and respect all these nations as the traditional stewards of the land, and today, the Shoshone and Arapaho tribes continue to live here and strive for respect and sovereignty. We will endeavor to be aware of the contemporary issues that they face and advocate for those traditional people of this land. We are grateful for the opportunity to be here and to continue the traditions of stewardship on this land, as we nurture and honor the food and people that we grow here.
