Land Acknowledgement

The 108th Annual Meeting takes place on the ancestral homelands of the Cheyenne, Ute, Arapaho and Lakota peoples, past and present. We gratefully acknowledge these Native Peoples as well as the diverse and vibrant Native communities who make their home in Colorado today. Indigenous people have remained committed to the stewardship of this land over many centuries. We commit to improving and enhancing engagement with Indigenous peoples and issues. AACRAO's Native American Caucus strives to provide a communal space for members who are ready to discuss issues, developments, and initiatives for individuals of indigenous descent in higher education.
