Indigenous Peoples' Day
Today, Oct. 9, Indigenous Peoples’ Day, we celebrate the resilience of Indigenous peoples and recognize their invaluable contributions to the world.
We acknowledge that the University of Nevada, Reno is situated on the traditional homelands of the Numu (Northern Paiute), Wašiw (Washoe), Newe (Western Shoshone), and Nuwu (Southern Paiute) peoples. These lands continue to be a gathering place for Indigenous Peoples and we recognize their deep connections to these places. We extend our appreciation for the opportunity to live and learn on their territory.
