The First Nations Center has worked with many offices and individuals across campus as they have developed their own land acknowledgment. Acknowledging Native space and histories, and connecting with Native communities is something best done when it reflects one’s own values, intentions, and understandings. We are happy to meet and discuss this further, as well as connect anyone with information or resources.

It is important to remember that the best source when looking for information regarding Native communities is the communities, themselves. Please take the time to review these tribal websites, learn about these Native communities, and look for ways that you can help contribute to the work that is being done.
