Marquette University's Land and Water Acknowledgement

Marquette University’s land and water acknowledgment is a statement that developed over weeks of reflection and conversation led by Indigenous student leadership with key faculty and staff. The statement recognizes the long history of Native people and nations that lived on and stewarded the land and water where the university now resides. It also celebrates the unbroken connection Native people and nations still have to this land and waterways, their traditional territories.


As of October 1, 2010, there are 565 federally recognized Native American Indian tribes eligible to receive services from the United States Department of the Interior Bureau of Indian Affairs. 

Federally Recognized Indian Tribes / National Congress of American Indians

Tribes can be accessed by location (area of the United States) and alphabetically by tribal name.

Tribal Leaders Directory / United States Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs

The Tribal Leaders Directory provides name, address, phone, and fax number for each of the 565 Federally-recognized Tribes.  If the tribe has provided an email address or website address to the BIA, that information will also be listed.  Each tribe is listed in three sections: the BIA region that provides services to them, the state where they are located, and in alphabetical order.  The Directory also provides information on the BIA Regions and agency offices.
