    The ARLIS/NY Board acknowledges that many of the organizations represented by members in this chapter operate on unceded Indigenous land, specifically the homeland of the Lenape peoples.  

    The Board has compiled a list of resources to honor this group and to encourage its members to establish Indigenous land acknowledgements as a standard practice at their respected institutions.  

    • Land Acknowledgement Bot: “an SMS and Facebook Messenger bot leveraging data from Canadian not-for-profit, Native Land, who ask that people use the data carefully because confirmation by nations is pending and they are updating data weekly.”

    • The Lenape Center:  “Since 2008, [the] Lenape Center based in Manhattan and led by Lenape elders has created programs, exhibitions, workshops, performances, symposia, land acknowledgment and ceremonies to continue our Lenape presence. We push back against our erasure and seed the ground with Lenape consciousness for the next generations.”

    • Native Land Digital: “Native-Land.ca website run by the nonprofit organization Native Land Digital. We are guided by a Board of Directors and an Advisory Council. Our funding comes from friendly organizations and individual donors.” Their mission is to “ map Indigenous lands in a way that changes, challenges, and improves the way people see the history of their countries and peoples,”
