HAA Board Indigenous Acknowledgement as adopted by the HAA Executive Committee, May 27, 2021

(updated October 24, 2022)

From its origins, our Harvard alumni community has been anchored and enriched by Native & Indigenous peoples from across the Americas and around the world. The land on which Harvard is situated has been a place of learning for millennia, where Native & Indigenous peoples have passed on their culture, history, and traditions from one generation to the next.

The Board of the Harvard Alumni Association acknowledges and pays its respects to the traditional custodians of the land on which Harvard University stands, the people of the Massachusett tribe and their Elders -- past, present, and emerging – and we honor the land itself, which remains sacred to the Massachusett people. 

The HAA Board acknowledges Harvard’s long historical relationships with the Nipmuc and Wampanoag peoples and pays its respects to them.

We acknowledge and pay our respects to the thousands of past, present, and emerging Native & Indigenous Elders throughout the Harvard alumni community.

Whereas through the good hand of God many well devoted persons have been and daily are moved and stirred up to give and bestow sundry gifts legacies lands and revenues for the advancement of all good literature arts and sciences in Harvard College in Cambridge in the County of Middlesex and to the maintenance of the President and Fellows and for all accommodations of buildings and all other necessary provisions that may conduce to the education of the English and Indian youth of this country in knowledge and godliness.” – The Harvard Charter of 1650
