By highlighting a selection of books, media, and resources, this guide is intended to serve as a tool for UNH community members to self-educate and develop increased cultural awareness and humility around issues relevant to Native American and Indigenous Communities. The guide provides starting points for learning for a general audience. For resources on Indigenous research practices and research with Indigenous communities, see the Research with Indigenous Communities Guide.
As we all journey on the trail of life, we wish to acknowledge the spiritual and physical connection the Pennacook, Abenaki, and Wabanaki Peoples have maintained to N’dakinna (homeland) and the aki (land), nebi (water), olakwika (flora), and awaasak (fauna) which the University of New Hampshire community is honored to steward today. We also acknowledge the hardships they continue to endure after the loss of unceded homelands and champion the university’s responsibility to foster relationships and opportunities that strengthen the well-being of the Indigenous People who carry forward the traditions of their ancestors.
Listen to the acknowledgement read by Denise Pouliot, the Sag8moskwa (Head Female Speaker) of the Cowasuk Band of Pennacook Abenaki People from Alton, New Hampshire and a member of the Indigenous New Hampshire Collaborative Collective (INHCC)
