Land Acknowledgement

Berkshire County Historical Society Land Acknowledgement

With gratitude and humility, we acknowledge that we are learning, speaking, and gathering on the ancestral homelands of the Mohican people, who are the indigenous peoples of this land. In spite of the tremendous hardship of being forced from their homeland, today their community thrives in Wisconsin and is known as the Stockbridge-Munsee Community. 

The Berkshire County Historical Society educates visitors about the history and stewardship of the Berkshires from the time of the Mohican people to the present day.

We pay honor and respect to the Stockbridge-Munsee Community’s ancestors past and present as we commit to building a more inclusive and equitable space for all.
