Indigenous Land Acknowledgement
This land acknowledgement is a first step in explicitly recognizing sovereignty and the ongoing history of dispossession of Indigenous peoples.
Since location is core to our identity, in name and in practice, the CNY Humanities Corridor acknowledges, with respect, that our 11-institution consortium spans the ancestral lands and waterways of the Haudenosaunee people. Corridor partnerships take place on lands of the nations of the sovereign Haudenosaunee Confederacy, founded at least 1,000 years ago at Onondaga Lake. Central New York remains home to the Haudenosaunee: we acknowledge the ongoing history of dispossession across the Confederacy, and are grateful to live, work, and share ideas on these lands.
