We acknowledge that Dyer Harris LLP and the city of New York is located on Lenapehoking, the unceded traditional territory of the Lenni-Lenape people who are also known by the colonial government as the Delaware Nation. The majority of Lenape peoples and the main political and cultural body of the tribe ended up in Oklahoma after repeated removals and relocations spanning over 50 years of exodus, leading halfway across Turtle Island in what is now known as North America. We pay respect to Lenape people past, present, and future and their continuing presence here and throughout the Lenape diaspora. We acknowledge the Indigenous peoples who have and who presently live, work, create, and contribute to communities here in Lenapehoking.
