Today, Van Ness Feldman acknowledges and celebrates the contributions that Indigenous peoples have made to this Nation. We honor Native Americans as the first people of these lands and recognize their culture, history, and communities.
As a Firm, we are honored to count Native Americans among our partners, employees and clients. Throughout our organization’s history, we have served Native communities across the United States – from the northern tip of Alaska to the southern tip of Florida. We are proud of the work that our Native Affairs Practice Group does to advance Native issues – by both advocating on behalf of Native governments and businesses and working with non-Native stakeholders and business partners to advance economic development and opportunity in Indian Country.
Van Ness Feldman recognizes Indigenous Peoples’ Day to acknowledge the importance, resilience, and vibrancy of Native communities and cultures in the United States. This annual recognition on the second Monday of October is consistent with our pledge earlier this year to pursue racial and social justice and ensure that our own operations remain attentive to issues of fairness and respect. In honor of that pledge, we celebrate our Native colleagues and clients on this Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
