Land Acknowledgment

Yale University acknowledges that indigenous peoples and nations, including Mohegan1, Mashantucket Pequot2, Eastern Pequot3, Schaghticoke4, Golden Hill Paugussett5, Niantic6, and the Quinnipiac7 and other Algonquian8 speaking peoples, have stewarded through generations the lands and waterways of what is now the state of Connecticut. We honor and respect the enduring relationship that exists between these peoples and nations and this land.
