UNM Indigenous Peoples’ Land and Territory Acknowledgement
Founded in 1889, the University of New Mexico sits on the traditional homelands of the Pueblo of Sandia. The original peoples of New Mexico — Pueblo, Navajo and Apache — since time immemorial, have deep connections to the land and have made significant contributions to the broader community. We honor the land itself and those who remain stewards of this land throughout the generations and also acknowledge our committed relationship to Indigenous peoples.

We gratefully recognize our history. Learn more.
