Land Acknowledgment

We humbly acknowledge the original inhabitants of the land Eastern Oregon University is upon: the Waiilatpu (Cayuse), Imatalamthlama (Umatilla), Waluulapam (Walla Walla), and Nimiipuu (Nez Perce) people. We celebrate their traditions, languages, and stories. We acknowledge their continuing connection to this land, water, and community and pay our respects to these original stewards of Northeastern Oregon.
