Land AcknowledgementAnthony Middle School recognizes and pays tribute to the sacred land that was stolen from Dakota, Anishinabe, and Indigenous people. We acknowledge and honor that our school is built on sacred land, an unearned privilege. Because of this, we have, and continue to benefit from what this traditional territory has to offer. We are committed to partnering with, reconciling with, and uplifting the voices of Indigenous people.
