Project Humanities acknowledges that our institution, Arizona State University, is situated on the ancestral lands of Indigenous nations. We thank the Native communities of the Salt River Valley—including the Akimel O’odham and the Pee Posh nations—who have inhabited this place for centuries, and whose stewardship of the land and waterways allows us to be here now.
Recognizing that Land Acknowledgments alone are not enough, Project Humanities is committed to supporting Native communities by
- promoting and learning about Indigenous histories, cultures, and values;
- creating critical environments where Native individuals and communities are welcomed and valued; and
- collaborating with Indigenous nations in this region to protect Native sovereignty, governance, and jurisdiction over their territories.
