Creating a Land Acknowledgement

Land acknowledgements are a respectful way to start meaningful conversations with and in support of Indigenous communities, and to honor their enduring stewardship of these lands, as well as to elevate the presence and voices of Native peoples – past, present, and future. There is not a one-stop-shop for creating your own land acknowledgement, which should be done in communication with Native American Tribes and Indigenous communities, but here are some resources to help you get started. Land acknowledgement is complicated but possible and important. Thank you for your interest in learning more!

Thank you for looking into this FIRST step in crafting a land acknowledgement. We encourage you to work to partner with your local Tribal and Indigenous communities and seek a better understanding of their interests in their ancestral homelands.
