For thousands of years, Yesą́, the people of the Monacan Nation, have lived on, protected and cultivated the lands on which the University of Virginia, built on colonized land by enslaved laborers, stands. As ancient peoples who thrive today, I acknowledge and respect their stewardship of the land past, present, and future.
