The Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU is located on the unceded land of the Lenape peoples. We ask you to join us in acknowledging the Lenape community, their elders both past and present, as well as future generations. We would also like to recognize that New York City is currently home to approximately 100,000 people who identify as Indigenous, including many peoples from the Pacific.
If you are unsure about whose land you are on, we encourage you to find out.
We at the Institute affirm our commitment to working to dismantle the ongoing legacies of settler colonialism and this semester we are offering a few ways to support Native and Indigenous communities:
- Nā ‘Aikāne o Maui Cultural Center of Lahaina
- Indigenous Peoples’ Day NYC
- Palestinian American Medical Association
