Once again鈥 #Repost @lolaschild 銉汇兓銉 Grateful for the opportunity to gather with my family and loved ones today to break bread and fellowship. But, first I must 鈥渞espectfully acknowledge that we are on the traditional, ancestral lands of the Osage Nation. The process of knowing and acknowledging the land we stand on is a way of honoring and expressing gratitude for the ancestral Osage people who were on this land before us.鈥 For more info: https://www.osagenation-nsn.gov #grateful #everydayisadayofthanksgiving 馃崈 馃崄 馃崅 https://www.instagram.com/p/CWtfQ91vFOV/?utm_medium=tumblr

I鈥檓 super excited about this robust program curated by @johnshannonmusic of @conalmapgh featuring @sierra_sellers_ @singyoh3artoutlevels @leonboykins @jasonjwashington @scottboni @joesheehanpiano Quinn Shannon, and Caroline McMahon Shannon.
