Land Acknowledgement Resources

Indigenous Peoples Institute & Campus Ministry Land Acknowledgement

Through collaboration the Indigenous Peoples Institute and Campus Ministry created language that can be incorporated into all campus events to acknowledge the history, people, lands, and waters of the Duwamish dxʷdəwʔabš aboriginal territory.

The following statement is offered as a way for our community to recognize this land and our history; to honor the people past and present who belong to this place; to create common and consistent language for our events and ceremonies; and to have language that was crafted with care and wisdom. 

This document is meant to be used as a reference or resource for those who would like to use it, it is not mandatory to use this specific land acknowledgement at any event.
