Kalejta Lab Land Acknowledgement

Our laboratory occupies land traditionally named Teejop (day-JOPE), the
ancestral and contemporary lands of the Ho-Chunk nation, which they were
forced to cede in an 1832 treaty. We recognize, support, and advocate for
the sovereignty of the Ho-Chunk and the eleven other First Nations of
Wisconsin. To acknowledge and honor the Ho-Chunk people for their
historical and current contributions stemming from this land, and in efforts to
support their continued expansion, our laboratory will work to educate, train,
and collaborate with all First Nations people of Wisconsin in scientific
research, career development, community service, and outreach.
