Land Acknowledgement

SGPA’s Land Acknowledgement

The Sleeping Giant Park Association was founded in 1924 through a partnership of neighbors and local residents with the express purpose of turning the land known as the Sleeping Giant into a public, then state park. We salute our founders.

We also acknowledge that the Giant is sacred space, connected to the beliefs and practices of the Quinnipiac people, who were the original inhabitants of an area that stretched from Long Island Sound to just north of these ridges.
