The Branford Land Trust acknowledges the people who have called the lands we conserve home. We honor the Totoket and Menunkatuck bands of the Quinnipiac people who were dispossessed of these lands. We pay respect to those who are no longer here and we celebrate the continuing and future presence of Indigenous people in this region. We are grateful for their stewardship of land, water, plants, and animals over thousands of years. We also recognize other people – past, present and future – with connections to this land: those who were enslaved and brought here against their will, those who come for a better life, and others who flee danger and seek refuge here. We vow to protect the land in perpetuity, to foster access to nature for all people, and to help heal our human relationship with the earth.
