˾þ Gallup Land Acknowledgement

Founded in 1968, UNMGallup sits on the traditional homelands of the Pueblo of Zuni Nation and Navajo Nation. The original peoples of New Mexico-Pueblo, and Navajo, since time immemorial, have deep connections to the land and have made significant contributions to the broader community statewide. 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 thankfully recognize our history, strive to build robust relationships with sovereign Native Nations and Indigenous peoples, and commit to maintain a diverse and inclusive environment with respect, understanding, and appreciation of all.
