“The lands on which Montana Technological University stand are a part of the ancient homeland and traditional territory of many Indigenous tribes, as places of hunting, travel, trade, and healing. We collectively acknowledge the Niimiipuu (Nez Perce), Piikani (Blackfeet), Seliš (Salish), and Agai-deka (Shoshone) peoples as original stewards. We pay respect and honor to the Nations and Peoples, as well as the land. By offering this Acknowledgement, we affirm Indigenous sovereignty and commit to serving the needs of American Indian and Indigenous peoples today and into the future.”
