Kitchen Theatre Company collectively acknowledges that our theatre occupies space on the unceded traditional homelands of the Gayogo̱hó:nǫˀ. The Gayogo̱hó:nǫˀ are members of the Hodinǫ̱hsǫ́:nih confederacy, an alliance of six Nations who have lived in this area for centuries and continue to do so today. The Hodinǫ̱hsǫ́:nih precedes the establishment of The Kitchen Theatre, New York State, and the United States of America. The Kitchen Theatre pays respect to the Hodinǫ̱hsǫ́:nih and all Indigenous peoples who have stewarded this land throughout the generations, and to their ongoing contributions: culturally, intellectually, artistically, and spiritually. We acknowledge the painful history of dispossession towards the Hodinǫ̱hsǫ́:nih and Indigenous people who traditionally inhabit North American land, and honor the ongoing connection of their people, past and present, to the lands and waters of Tompkins County.
