Syracuse University Libraries acknowledges, with respect, the Onondaga Nation, Firekeepers of the Haudenosaunee, the Indigenous people on whose ancestral lands Syracuse University now stands.

Being located in the heart of Haudenosaunee country, (Haudenosaunee is the Iroquoian term for "people of the longhouse") makes Syracuse University an ideal setting for promoting cross cultural dialogue and work on issues of concern to Native Americans.
