Native American Resources

We recognize Native Americans as the the original inhabitants, explorers and settlers of the United States. We honor the rich ancestry, traditions, and culture of Native American people, and acknowledge the work that needs to be done to ensure the rights and recognition of Indigenous Peoples in America.

We encourage you to learn the traditional homelands on which you reside. We also encourage your mindfulness of the historical context of colonialism and the unique and disproportionate hardships Native Americans still currently face.

Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that the University of North Alabama is situated upon the traditional homelands of ᎠᎳᎫᏪᏘᏱ Tsalaguwetiyi (Cherokee, East) and Chikashsha Yaki (Chickasaw) tribal nations. We respect and honor the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout generations. We pay homage with gratitude to the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we gather today.
