Land Acknowledgement

Beloit College is located on the ancestral territory of Indigenous peoples, and we respectfully acknowledge the Potawatomi, Peoria, Miami, Meskwaki, and Ho-Chunk people who have stewarded this land. We are settlers on this land and recognize that colonialism is an ongoing process that must be disrupted. Museums, and in particular anthropology, are complicit in constructing and perpetuating inequalities, erasures, injustices, dispossession, and misrepresentations that continue to oppress and marginalize Indigenous peoples.
