Land Acknowledgement

The Alumni Association of the University of Michigan acknowledges that the University of Michigan is located on the territory of the Anishinaabeg people. The Ann Arbor campus currently resides on land that was ceded during the Treaty of Detroit in 1807. Additionally, in 1817, the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Potawatomi Nations made the single largest land transfer to the University of Michigan ceded through the Treaty of Fort Meigs with the agreement that their children would be educated in perpetuity.

We acknowledge the sovereignty of tribal lands and the painful history of genocide, forced assimilation, and displacement of native communities that helped to facilitate the establishment of U-M. We affirm contemporary and ancestral Anishinaabeg ties to this land, the profound contributions of Native American peoples to this institution, and the University’s commitment to educating the children of native ancestors.
