The purpose of Land Acknowledgements is to recognize, honor, and show respect of Indigenous past, present and future. Taking the format of written and/or verbal statements, land acknowledgments help deepen understanding around the relationship of particular lands, and the relationship current inhabitants have with those lands.
Important to note, Kentucky does not have any state or federally recognized tribes. To learn more about the formation of historical myths, visit here.
