In the spirit of supporting and fostering learning through the generation and sharing of knowledge, the University of Louisville Cultural Center would like to acknowledge that the land we are meeting on today is the original homeland of the Shawnee, Cherokee, Chickasaw, and Osage tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we gather.
