The University of Nebraska is a land-grant institution with campuses and programs on the past, present, and future homelands of the Pawnee, Ponca, Otoe-Missouria, Omaha, Dakota, Lakota, Arapaho, Cheyenne, Apache, and Kaw Peoples, as well as the relocated Ho-Chunk, Iowa, and Sac and Fox Peoples. Land acknowledgements are not substitutes for relationships with Indigenous Peoples, but represent an important first step. This knowledge and the centering of Indigenous Peoples allows us to better understand the legacies of more than 150 years of displacement, violence, settlement, and survival which continue to inform our present and future.
