Augustana College sits on the original homelands of multiple Native Nations. We rest, learn, and work on the lands of the Kickapoo, Peoria, Sauk and Meskwaki, Myaamia, and Očhéthi Šakówiŋ people. It is important to actively reflect on and discuss the historical context in which our college exists. As you go about your day, think of the different ways you may benefit by living on land that was originally the homes of Indigenous people who experienced forced removal and genocide.
*A land acknowledgement is one small way to acknowledge the people who originally inhabited the land that was then colonized by European settlers. To learn more about land acknowledgements, read some of the links provided on this guide under "Online Resources."
