Land Acknowledgement

CILO wishes to acknowledge and honor the Indigenous communities native to this region, we acknowledge that our main office in Bloomington, Indiana, was built on Indigenous homelands and resources. We recognize the Miami, Delaware, Potawatomi, and Shawnee people as past, present, and future caretakers of this land, and honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations. CILO works towards building better relationships with Native American communities through language revitalization, partnerships, historical recognitions, and community service. We ask you to join us in acknowledging the Indigenous communities here and wherever we work, their Elders both past and present, as well as future generations.
