The University of Illinois at Chicago rests on the land of multiple native nations. We recognize and honor the native and indigenous peoples of the Chicagoland area Рthe Three Fires Confederacy, Potawatomi, Odawa and Ojibwe Nations, as well as other Tribal Nations that know this area as their ancestral homeland, including the Menominee, Ho-Chunk, Miami, Peoria, and Sac and Fox. Native people are part of Chicago’s past, present, and future and it is our responsibility to listen to their voices, to do no further harm, and to work together for equity and inclusion.
