WSS Land Acknowledgment Statement

Washington, D.C., in which Washington Studio School is located, is sited on the ancestral, traditional and contemporary homelands of the Nacotchtank (Anacostan), Piscataway Conoy, Pamunkey, and Manahoac people. We acknowledge that these lands, including the land on which Washington Studio School sits, are unceded indigenous lands. 


The Anacostia and Potomac River river systems and surrounding land supported thriving indigenous cultures. Indigenous peoples, including members of these nations, still live and practice their teachings and traditions, celebrate their heritage, and contribute to the life in this city today. We acknowledge and honor these stewards of the land, past and present, and their ongoing and fundamental relationships and contributions to the region. 


Land acknowledgment is a traditional custom that dates back centuries in many Native nations and communities. This is a living Land Acknowledgment, and we will continue to revise and strengthen it in collaboration with community members.
