Penn College Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that the land on which we live, work, and learn is the ancestral home of the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee, Iroquoian-speaking Susquehannocks, and the Lenni Lenape (Delaware). We too recognize their Woodland period ancestors.  We are grateful for their stewardship and management of this land over thousands of years and promote this recognition in honor and respect of that caretaking.
