Niagara University acknowledges that we are privileged to gather on the lands of the Seneca and Tuscarora nations and other Indigenous communities who have stewarded this land throughout generations. We honor their sovereignty, demonstrate respect and correct the stories and practices that have erased Indigenous peoples’ history and culture by inviting and honoring truth.
As a university striving for inclusive excellence, we believe that truth and recognition are critical components to building connections across all barriers of heritage and differences. We offer land acknowledgment as part of the conscious effort to affirm our commitment to be better stewards of the land on which we stand and to pledge to work in partnership with a spirit of mutual respect and collaboration. Niagara University appreciates and regards the traditions of our community’s diverse cultures.
