The Northwestern, UIC, and UChicago campuses reside on the original homelands and traditional territory of the Council of Three Fires, the Ojibwe, Potawatomi, and Odawa Nations, as well as other Tribal Nations that know this area as their ancestral homeland, including the Menominee, Ho-Chunk, Miami, Peoria, Očhéthi Šakówiŋ, Kaskaskia, Kiikaapoi, and Sac and Fox. Indigenous peoples are the traditional stewards of the land that we now occupy, living here long before Chicago was a city and still thriving here today and current home to one of the largest urban Native American communities in the United States. Native people are part of Chicago’s past, present, and future.
