The Duluth NAACP stands with the Duluth Indigenous Commission with renaming Lake Place Park, in Duluth, to Gichi-ode’ Akiing which translates to ‘A Grand Heart Place’ in Anishinaabe language. We understand the importance of genuinely recognizing Anishinaabe lands, people, language, culture and local history to help educate non-Native citizens and visitors about our Indigenous community and their long standing contributions to Duluth. We urge the City Council to approve the city resolution on Monday, December 10.
