We acknowledge the waters and lands of this county called Leelanau—a name invented by a non-native—are located on the ancestral, traditional, and contemporary lands of the Anishinaabeg -the Three Fires Confederacy of the Ojibwe, Ottawa, and Potawatomi peoples. Since time immemorial, the Anishinaabeg have lived, worked, honored, and respected these lands.
