Johnson & Wales University Library considers it deeply important to acknowledge that our campus rests on the Native American homelands of six indigenous tribes: the Narragansett, Wampanoag, Pequot, Niantic, Nipmuc and Pokanoket. We honor and thank these vibrant Nations for their devotion to the land.
Johnson & Wales University Library recognizes the difficult experiences that Rhode Island’s indigenous peoples have faced, along with the role they play in sustaining the cultural and physical vitality of the environment.
