Land and Labor Acknowledgment:

The Southern University at New Orleans Museum of Art (SUNOMA) acknowledges that we are situated on the ancestral lands of indigenous peoples who have stewarded this land for generations. We recognize the historic and ongoing contributions of the Houma, Choctaw, and other Indigenous nations to the land on which our museum stands.

Furthermore, we acknowledge the labor and resilience of enslaved Africans and their descendants who were forcibly brought to this region. Their enduring strength and cultural contributions have shaped the history and fabric of this community.

In the spirit of reconciliation and respect, we honor the diverse histories, cultures, and traditions that have shaped this place. We are committed to engaging in ongoing dialogues, meaningful collaborations, and educational initiatives that center the voices and experiences of Indigenous peoples, African and African American descendant communities, and all those who have contributed to the vibrant tapestry of our region.

By acknowledging the land we stand on and the labor that has shaped it, we strive to create a more just and inclusive future that recognizes the resilience, dignity, and interconnectedness of all people and their histories.
