A Land Acknowledgement is a statement identifying the indigenous peoples, nations, and histories within an area. However, land acknowledgements can become empty gestures rather than powerful declarations of recognition. We recommend researching, contextualizing, and examining the purpose of an acknowledgement when engaging in this practice. (Colorado College)

The Native Governance Center provides tips for writing land acknowledgement statements here.

The #HonorNativeLand organization provides further explanation and resources for providing land acknowledgements in digital spaces and meetings here.
