IHRC Land Acknowledgement

The University of Minnesota, Twin Cities is located on Dakota land. Today, many Indigenous people, including Dakota and Ojibwe from throughout the state, call the Twin Cities home. The IHRC acknowledges that the migration of immigrants and refugees to the US has been part of US settler-colonial practices that displaced and dispossessed Indigenous peoples. The study of immigration must acknowledge these intersections, consequences, and legacies. This land acknowledgment is one of the ways in which we work to educate the campus and our larger IHRC community about this land and our relationships with it and each other. The IHRC is committed to ongoing efforts to recognize, support, and advocate for American Indian Nations and peoples.
