Biosystems Engineering, PLLC (BE)
LET'S BE ON PURPOSE TOGETHER
While Biosystems Engineering, PLLC (BE) does most of its consulting work virtually, we would like to acknowledge that our brick and mortar foundation began on the land of the Eno, Tutelo, Saponi, Occaneechi, and Shakori Native people. Land that was traditionally part of the territory of the Saponi people, in the Piedmont of what is now the state of North Carolina and in the town now called Carrboro. This area is not far from the “Great Trading Path”, used by both the native people of this area and non-native peoples during the early years of contact. The Saponi people, whose descendants include the Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation Indian Tribe still thrive and live in this region, officially recognized by the state government of North Carolina. We pay respect to their elders past and present. The Occaneechi People (The Ye’sah), ask that you will keep these thoughts in mind while on their ancestral lands and treat it with the respect, love, and care that their Ancestors did, and as the Occaneechi Saponi people do so today.
We respectfully acknowledge and credit the OBSN Tribal Council for this land acknowledgment and remind us all that we are all, always, on Native Land.
