Land Acknowledgement

The Nanook Diversity & Action Center and its staff acknowledges the Alaska Native nations upon whose unceded traditional lands we are located. The University of Alaska Fairbanks' main campus is located on Troth Yeddha, a sacred site of the Lower Tanana Dene people. We acknowledge and honor the ancestral & present land stewardship and place-based knowledge of the peoples of these territories.
