Land Acknowledgement for our Programs and Buildings

A land acknowledgement is a statement that formally recognizes the historical and continuing connection between indigenous peoples and their native lands.

In this spirit, we humbly make this land acknowledgement of where our buildings and programs exist.

We acknowledge the Tuscarora people, who are the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and live, and recognize their continuing connection to the land, water, and air that Greenville consumes. We pay respect to eight recognized tribes; Coharie, Eastern Band of Cherokee, Haliwa-Saponi, Lumbee, Meherrin, Occaneechi Band of Saponi, Sappony, and Waccamaw-Siouan, all Nations, and their elders past, present, and emerging.
