“To recognize the land is an expression of gratitude and appreciation to those whose territory you reside on, and a way of honoring the Indigenous people who have been living and working on the land from time immemorial. It is important to understand the long standing history that has brought you to reside on the land, and to seek to understand your place within that history.”On land acknowledgements from Northwestern University

The Land We Are On

Waldorf School at Moraine Farm seeks to honor the land on which we gather to learn, as well as the people for whom this is a traditional homeland. We acknowledge that our campus and its surrounding area are traditional Pennacook/Pawtucket lands. As an institution dedicated to learning, diversity, and community, we recognize that it is our responsibility to protect and uphold the people and history of this land. We understand that we benefit from this land, and recognize the injustice of colonialism which has created this benefit for us. We respectfully seek to grow in our understanding of our participation in this unjust system and to build a future that creates justice for those who call this place home.


Moving forward this acknowledgement will live on our site and will also be posted in our school lobby. We invite you to learn more about the peoples native to the North Shore.
