Land use statement
Robbinsdale Parkway UCC stands in solidarity with the Indigenous community, friends, neighbors and caretakers of air, land and water.
In 1893 Robbinsdale was established. As a faith community, we recognize that our church resides on stolen land. Taken illegally from the Sisseton and Wahpeton bands of the Dakota during the 1851 Cession 289 treaty, white settlers are responsible for the genocide, forced assimilation and systemic violence against the Native families and nations who lived in these regions.
We who are non-Native confess that our ongoing colonization of the land is unjust, and that our broken relationship with the land is a root cause of our global climate crisis. We seek to live in a posture of repentance and repair and collectively seek to heal our relationship with the Dakota and Anishinaabe people, with this land and with our own souls.
