Land Acknowledgement Guide

The Guide to Indigenous Land and Territorial Acknowledgements for Cultural Institutions is a comprehensive guide for institutions such as museums, archives, libraries, and universities to recognize and respect Indigenous homelands, inherent sovereignty, and survivance.

This guide builds upon the important work that the Lenape Center, American Indian Community House, Rick Chavolla, Emily Johnson, the New Red Order (NRO) and the Native American and Indigenous Student Group (NAISG) at NYU have been doing with regard to land acknowledgements in Lenapehoking.

Developed by: Felicia Garcia (Chumash), M.A. Museum Studies, New York University, 2018 with Jane Anderson, Museum Studies, New York University.
