Our Land Committment

St. Cloud State University acknowledges that we are gathering, speaking, learning, and structurally built on and within Mni Sota Makoce, the homeland of the Dakota peoples. Native Nations, including the Anishinaabe, Ho-Chunk, Cheyenne, Oto, Iowa, Hidatsa, Arikara, A’aninin, Cree, Blackfeet, Assiniboine, and the Sac and Fox, have also called this land home both before and after the arrival of European settlers. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal of Native peoples from this territory. We honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we gather.

St. Cloud State University is committed to developing a land acknowledgment that is not just words but actions. We will actively promote education among our faculty, staff, and students on Indigenous issues, including research on the historical and ongoing harms impacting our Indigenous communities. We will also clearly outline our goals to make a positive and lasting contribution to efforts to build relationships with the Tribal Nations represented within our local and broader community. St. Cloud State University commits to creating a substantive and empathic land acknowledgment, demonstrating our continued commitment to action.
