Land Acknowledgement for UNCW

The University of North Carolina Wilmington would like to acknowledge that the land we are on is traditional territory for the Indigenous people of North Carolina and has long served as a site of meeting and exchange among Indigenous peoples, including the eight recognized tribes of North Carolina - the Coharie, Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, Haliwa-Saponi, Lumbee, Meherrin, Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation, Sappony, and Waccamaw-Siouan. UNCW honors and respects the diverse Indigenous peoples connected to this territory on which we gather.
