Land Acknowledgement Statement From American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program's Indigenous Dispossession Project

Cornell University is located on the traditional homelands of the Cayuga Nation. The Cayuga Nation are members of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, an alliance of six sovereign Nations with a historic and contemporary presence on this land. The Confederacy precedes the establishment of Cornell University, New York State, and the United States of America. We acknowledge the painful history of the Cayuga Nation dispossession, and honor the ongoing connection of Cayuga Nation people, past and present, to these lands and waters. Furthermore, Cornell University obtained 977,909 acres of expropriated Indigenous land through the Morrill Act of 1862.
