Guide to Indigenous Land and Territorial Acknowledgements for Cultural Institutions

Educators, librarians, and community leaders may enjoy this resource, a "Guide to Indigenous Land and Territorial Acknowledgements for Cultural Institutions." The guide is designed for "institutions such as museums, archives, libraries, and universities," to promote recognition and respect for "Indigenous homelands, inherent sovereignty, and survivance." Land and territorial acknowledgements "recognizes the Indigenous peoples who have been dispossessed from homelands and territories upon which an institution was built and currently occupies and operates in." On the site, readers can download the short guide as a PDF and browse additional resources highlighted on the right-hand panel. These resources include educational materials, news articles, and multimedia presentations on land acknowledgement. Felicia Garcia (Chumash) and Jane Anderson, both from New York University (NYU), created the guide in 2018. They received support from Decolonize This Place, NYC Stands with Standing Rock, the American Indian Community House, the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums, and several other departments within NYU.
