pg电子游戏 University's land acknowledgment

pg电子游戏 University acknowledges that the land on which we gather and refer to as Minnesota is the traditional and unceded territory of the Dakota and Ojibwe. Minnesota comes from the Dakota name for this region Mni Sota Makoce, “the land where the waters reflect the skies.” We pay respect to the citizens of not only those tribes, 但其他人也一样, 过去和现在, and their continuing relationship to their ancestral lands. Making this recognition expresses gratitude and appreciation to those whose territory we reside on and honors the Indigenous people who have been existing with, 和, 自古以来的土地. This long-standing history is significant as land acknowledgments do not exist in past tense or historical context—colonialism, 拨款, and genocide have relevant real-time realities. We need to build mindfulness regarding the source of our present land privilege, understand the long-standing history from which it comes, and seek to reconcile our place within both.

pg电子游戏, as an institution and community, will hold itself accountable as an Indigenous partner by working stridently to amplify, address, and counter the historical and contemporary injustices that continue to impact Indigenous people—individually, 系统, 和结构.
