Land Acknowledgement

Stanford University Land Acknowledgement

“Stanford sits on the ancestral land of the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe. This land was and continues to be of great importance to the Ohlone people. Consistent with our values of community and inclusion, we have a responsibility to acknowledge, honor, and make visible the University’s relationship to Native peoples.” 

This acknowledgment has been developed in collaboration with the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe.


Stanford Libraries support for Stanford Land Acknowledgement

Stanford Libraries recognize that Stanford University and the San Francisco Bay Area include vibrant Indigenous communities. We respect and value Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies. As a cultural heritage repository and information resource to the Stanford community and beyond, Stanford Libraries have a responsibility to foster an environment of opportunity and success for Indigenous students, scholars, and other library users.
