Department of Theatre and Dance Land Acknowledgement

We wish to acknowledge this land on which Texas State University exists and operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Jumano, Cibolo, Cantona, Casquesa, Coahuiltecan tribes. It is also the ancestral land for the Apache, Caddo, Comanche, Kiowa, Wichita, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Alabama-Coushatta, Creek, Kickapoo, Ysleta Del Sur Pueblo, and the Lipan Apache Tribe of Texas Band of Yaqui Indians. 

Today, this meeting place is still home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to be in unity in this physical and metaphysical space, to open our hearts to each other in the spirit of sharing our experiences in order to learn from each other.

(Information from this acknowledgement was gathered from the Edwards Aquifer website, the U.S Department of Arts and Culture, and ACPA website.)
