Public health is critically important. The diverse and growing field of public health provides a comprehensive understanding of exposures and behaviors that confer risk and resilience to disease to ultimately improve health, reduce the burden of disease, and address health disparities.”
The following Indigenous land acknowledgement statement was developed in collaboration with Indigenous scholars and students at the University of Montana:
The University of Montana resides on the traditional lands of many Indigenous peoples including the Selis (Salish), Ksanka (Kootenai), and Qlispe (Kalispel). Many other Indigenous peoples including the Amskapi Pikuni (Blackfeet), Nimiipuu (Nez Perce), Shoshone, Bannock, and Schitsu’umsh (Coeur D’Alene) also relied upon their traditional knowledge and relationships with this land and this space for survival in the past and today.
We acknowledge that education, health, and legal systems have led to the direct removal, oppression, and marginalization of Indigenous people throughout Montana and the nation. The University of Montana strives to improve education, service, and scholarship for all Indigenous peoples through actions aimed at respecting tribal sovereignty, empowering indigenous scholars, and creating safe learning environments for all students to live, work, and learn together in equitable and positive ways.
