Land Acknowledgement Info

Land Acknowledgement

  • "The Fresno State campus sits in the midst of the San Joaquin Valley, a valley rich in the traditions and representation of Native American peoples and cultures. We are grateful to be in the traditional homelands of the Yokuts and Mono peoples, whose diverse tribal communities share stewardship over this land."

What Is A Land Acknowledgment? 

  • A Land Acknowledgement is a formal statement that recognizes and respects Native peoples as traditional stewards of lands. The statement highlights the enduring relationship between Native peoples and their traditional territories.


Why Do We Recognize the Land?

  • To recognize the land is an expression of gratitude and appreciation to those whose territory you reside on, and a way of honoring the Native people who have been living and working on the land from time immemorial.
