Princeton University sits on land considered part of the ancient homelands of the Lenni-Lenape peoples. We recommend the university's page on land acknowledgements as well as the Living Land Acknowledgment page by the Institute for Advanced Study's Library to explore local history. We welcome you to explore our curated physical collection on the first floor of Firestone Library, and to suggest additions.
