We acknowledge the People – past, present, and future – of the traditional territory of the Puyallup and other ancestral homelands of the Coast Salish People on whose lands we study and work.
Related to the NWIC mission of supporting and fostering learning through the generations and dissemination of knowledge, we acknowledge that the land of the Nez Perce Site Campus is on the original homelands of the Nimiipuu (Nez Perce people) of the past, present, and future. We acknowledge the entirety of history of this place and honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations.
