Our Land Acknowledgement: Where do we stand? We are still learning as an organization, but to the best of our knowledge, the Louis Armstrong House Museum stands on the traditional land of the Matinecock People, one of the original tribes of New York, and a people who continue to live and work on this land to this day. We stand in a community that has been home to immigrants from many nations throughout its history and through today. We stand in a community that, in the 1940’s, welcomed two Black artists, at a time when many communities did not. We stand because of the support of community members and leaders who have passed, including Selma Heraldo, Michael Cogswell, Phoebe Jacobs, Stanley Crouch and Jimmy Heath. And we stand in the legacy of both Louis and Lucille Armstrong.
