Land Acknowledgement

Duluth Playhouse acknowledges that the land on which we live, work, and tell our stories is the ancestral home of the Ojibwe and Dakota Peoples. We recognize the indigenous people and communities who have been, become, and are still a part of this place where we live. We also recognize that we are all stewards of this land for future generations.
