Wicked Karma would like to acknowledge the people whose land we are gathered on for this event and all days. Present day Des Moines is located on the traditional village sites of the Muckleshoot, Duwamish, Puyallup and many other tribes who made their homes on these lands and along these waters.
Let us also acknowledge the robust Indigenous communities made up of tribal diversity that originate from around the country, and whose journeys have brought them here and to other locations by ways of forced displacement or seeking opportunities.
Today the same communities celebrate their heritage, showing resilience and tenacity that would be greatly admired by their ancestors.
