Indigenous Land Acknowledgement

Nicolet College recognizes the unique, enduring relationships that exist between indigenous peoples and their traditional lands. In doing so, Nicolet College looks to respectfully acknowledge that our institution is located on the traditional homelands of the Potawatomi (Bodwe’ wadomi), Ojibwe” (Anishinaabe’) and Menominee (Omaeqnomene) people and their respective nations.

 The story of Native people must be told, understood, and celebrated in order to enrich and enlighten society and to thrive as an inclusive democracy. Confronting the past, while laying the groundwork for a shared future, we believe we can better provide a climate that is welcoming, inclusive, and respectful of Native languages, history, culture, and American Indian learners.

At Nicolet College, we are committed to providing equitable access, accurate historical information, building trust and relationships among our tribal communities, and to advancing the value indigenous knowledge and wisdom holds for today’s society.
