Indigenous Land Acknowledgment

Plan-B Theatre is anti-racist and anti-racism.

We are a Transforming Institution committed to dismantling white supremacy.

Today our Board of Trustees signed the Utah Compact on Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

Today we acknowledge that our office, rehearsal spaces, and performance spaces are located on the ancestral lands of the Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Reservation and the Northwestern Band of Shoshone Nation.

We acknowledge that Utah is home to six additional tribal nations: Navajo Nation, Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah, San Juan Southern Paiute, Skull Valley Band of Goshute, Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, and Ute Indian Tribe.

We acknowledge the Confederated Tribes of the Goshute Reservation and the Northwestern Band of Shoshone Nation as the original caretakers of the unceded land on which we create our work.

We also acknowledge our privilege in making this statement.

We humbly pledge to acknowledge past, present, and future generations of the eight tribal nations that call Utah home.

As our first step toward honoring the truth and achieving healing and reconciliation, we commit to open all public events and gatherings with a statement acknowledging the traditional Native lands on which we stand. Such statements become truly meaningful when coupled with authentic relationships and sustained commitment. We therefore commit to move beyond words into programs and actions that fully embody a commitment to Indigenous rights and cultural equity.

Utah’s Indigenous citizens have been particularly hard-hit by COVID-19. Please click here to contribute to the relief effort.
