EYTE was founded on the unceded land of the Munsee Lenape peoples. I ask you to join me in acknowledging the Musee Lenape community, their elders both past and present, as well as future generations.

EYTE also acknowledges that it was founded upon exclusions and erasures of many Indigenous peoples, including those on whose land this institution is located. This acknowledgement demonstrates a commitment to beginning the process of working to dismantle the ongoing legacies of settler colonialism.
