Land acknowledgement statement
Land acknowledgement is a process by which individuals are prompted to consider the history of the space they currently inhabit.
We would like to recognize that Western Michigan University is located on lands historically occupied by Ojibwe, Odawa, and Bodewadmi nations. Please take a moment to acknowledge and honor this ancestral land of the Three Fires Confederacy, the sacred lands of all indigenous peoples and their continued presence.
