Through our work with the children we celebrate the people, places, and cultures of our surrounding communities and the land we share. We intentionally commit to the values of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice to achieve our vision as a healthy place to work, learn and play. Through our collective and deliberate efforts the Tiny Green Trees community acts in solidarity with an appreciation for all our families, colleagues and the natural world around us. We know that we can accomplish far more together than alone.
We acknowledge in Milwaukee that we are on traditional Potawatomi, Ho-Chunk and Menominee homeland along the southwest shores of Michigami, North America’s largest system of freshwater lakes, where the Milwaukee, Menominee and Kinnickinnic rivers meet and the people of Wisconsin’s sovereign Anishinaabe, Ho-Chunk, Menominee, Oneida and Mohican nations remain present.
“When we talk about land, land is part of who we are. It’s a mixture of our blood, our past, our current, and our future. We carry our ancestors in us, and they’re around us. As you all do.”
(Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe)
