Land Acknowledgment

We acknowledge...


Childsplay acknowledges that modern-day Phoenix and Tempe, including the Herberger Theater Center (where Childsplay performs) and Childsplay's Campus for Imagination and Wonder, sit on the traditional lands of the Akimel O'odam (Pima) and the Tohono O'odham. And before that, their ancestors (Hohokam) as well as the Pee-Posh (Maricopa) lands. This place where we live and work has been, and continues to be, the home of indigenous people since time immemorial. Our desert metropolis exists today thanks to the ingenuity of these people in creating a vast system of irrigation canals.
