Situating Place

As we gather in community at Wayne State University we must acknowledge the land in which choose to gather and thank the space and peoples that have been stewards of the lands before us.

From the Wayne State University Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion website:

"Wayne State University rests on Waawiyaataanong, also referred to as Detroit, the ancestral and contemporary homeland of the Three Fires Confederacy. These sovereign lands were granted by the Ojibwe, Odawa, Potawatomi, and Wyandot nations, in 1807, through the Treaty of Detroit. Wayne State University affirms Indigenous sovereignty and honors all tribes with a connection to Detroit. With our Native neighbors, WSU can advance educational equity and promote a better future for the earth and all people."
