Methods in forming a strategic plan.

Indigenous land acknowledgements: Example: New York University is located on the ancestral lands of the Lənape Haki-nk, of the Delaware Tribe of Indians, a proud and sovereign nation whose commitment to culture, community, and land stewardship persist in the face of ongoing settler colonialism. Example: Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR is located in the traditional territory of the Chepenefu ("Mary's River") band of the Kalapuya. After the Kalapuya Treaty (Treaty of Dayton) in 1855, Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to what are now the Grand Ronde and Siletz reservations, and are now members of Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon ( and the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians ( Example: The University of Oregon in Eugene, OR is located on Kalapuya Ilihi, the traditional indigenous homeland of the Kalapuya people. Following treaties between 1851 and 1855, Kalapuya people were dispossessed of their indigenous homeland by the United States government and forcibly removed to the Coast Reservation in Western Oregon. Today, descendants are citizens of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians of Oregon, and they continue to make important contributions in their communities, at UO, and across the land we now refer to as Oregon. For more information, please see the UO Libraries full statement on Honoring Native Peoples and Lands. Example: I live and work on Chochenyo Ohlone land. Whose land are you on? University of Alberta: University of Guelph UCLA: University of San Diego: San Diego State University: The University of South Dakota acknowledges at many events that it is built on the ancestral lands of the Sioux, but I I could not find such an acknowledgement on the university's website. Mitakuye Oyasin does appear in several places (Sioux proverb meaning 'we are all related') Michigan State University has a land acknowledgement: I don't see a lot of institutional encouragement for staff to use acknowledgments of original land inhabitants in their *email signatures,* per se, but I do see some practitioners using wording that is also used by their institutions.
