City of Greeley Museums Land Acknowledgment
City of Greeley Museums occupy land that is home to the Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Ute, as well as other tribes that have ties to this region. The traditional lifeways of Indigenous peoples were robust and thriving for thousands of years. Europeans began exploring and colonizing in the late 1500s, bringing devastation to the land and Native nations. Yet Tribal values, beliefs, and customs, including a deep respect and gratitude for the natural environment, remain in practice today.
Greeley Museums acknowledge that our continued presence on the homeland of Indigenous peoples contributes to the overwriting of Native histories and devaluing of Native voices. In an effort to address this, we recognize and celebrate the expertise of Indigenous peoples in stewarding their land, cultural artifacts, and histories. We are actively working to share power and decision-making authority with Native communities. Together, we can interrupt colonizing practices, prioritize Native voices, and offer a deeper, more complete view of the region’s past, present, and future.
