Iowa State University Land Acknowledgement

We would like to begin this event with a land acknowledgment. Iowa State University is located on the ancestral lands and territory of the Baxoje, or Ioway Nation. The United States obtained the land from the Meskwaki and Sauk nations in the Treaty of 1842. We wish to recognize our obligations to this land and to the people who took care of it, as well as to the 17,000 Native people who live in Iowa today.

We encourage you to fully participate on social media

Please feel free to share this meeting experience and use the hashtag #NVSS2021. Also, we have a few activities planned for networking and getting to know fellow attendees virtually. Join us for trivia on August 4th and 5th.
