We respectfully acknowledge that Montclair State University occupies land in Lenapehoking, the traditional and expropriated territory of the Lenape. As a state institution, we recognize and
support the sovereignty of New Jersey’s three state-recognized tribes: the Ramapough Lenape,
Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape, and Powhatan Renape nations. We recognize the sovereign nations
of the Lenape diaspora elsewhere in North America, as well as other Indigenous individuals and
communities now residing in New Jersey. By offering this land acknowledgement, we commit to
addressing the historical legacies of Indigenous dispossession and dismantling practices of
erasure that persist today. We recognize the resilience and persistence of contemporary
Indigenous communities and their role in educating all of us about justice, equity, and the
stewardship of the land throughout the generations
