Land acknowledgement: The University of Oregon in Eugene, OR is located on Kalapuya Ilihi, the traditional indigenous homeland of the Kalapuya people. Following treaties between
1851 and 1855, Kalapuya people were dispossessed of their indigenous homeland by the United States government and forcibly removed to the Coast Reservation in Western Oregon. Today, descendants are citizens of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community
of Oregon and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians of Oregon, and they continue to make important contributions in their communities, at UO, and across the land we now refer to as Oregon. For more information, please see the UO Libraries full statement
on Honoring Native Peoples and Lands.
