Land Acknowledgement Resources

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. 

"As we begin our gathering, I/we respectfully acknowledge that our event today is taking place on the homelands of the Coast Salish peoples, who continue to steward these lands and waters as they have since time immemorial.  We recognize tribal nations and organizations who actively create, shape, and contribute to our thriving community at Seattle University and beyond.

“We, as an academic community, should be and are committed to doing our part to engage with and amplify the voices of Native peoples and tribes.  We acknowledge our collective responsibility to advance proper education of Native peoples and tribes and call for further learning and action to support the Native people of this land."
