Short Film on Forest Park Amusement Park
Land Acknowledgment Statement
Forest Park is located on the aboriginal homelands of several tribal nations: the Kickapoo, Peoria, Kaskaskia, Potawatomi, Myaamia, and Ochethi Sakowin. We acknowledge the painful forced removal of these people from their ancestral lands by European settlers. We commit to building relationships with descendants of these tribal nations who still live among us and to sharing the history and contributions of native peoples with the Forest Park community.
