At noon on Indigenous Peoples’ Day, gather at the Mound on campus (between North Hall and Main Building, near Red Square) for a reading of the College’s Land Acknowledgement.
Written by Shane Creepingbear (Kiowa) in collaboration with Chief Ben Barnes of the Shawnee Tribe based in Miami, OK, whose people were forcibly removed from Ohio areas around Wapakoneta in 1831, the Land Acknowledgment should be used for all major campus events and will be publicly posted on the Antioch College website.
Other contributors to the Land Acknowledgement include Dawn Knickerbocker (Anishinaabe), Jheri Neri (Dine), and support from the Greater Cincinnati Native American Coalition (GCNAC).
