I would like to acknowledge that the University of Michigan resides on the traditional Territories of the Three Fire Peoples - the Ojibwe, Odawa and Bodewadmi. As we work, live and play on these territories we must keep in mind the ongoing affects of colonization, communities struggle for self-determination, colonial state violence and the recognition of Indigenous sovereignty.
