The Northwestern campus sits on the traditional homelands of the people of the Council of Three Fires, the Ojibwe, Potawatomi, and Odawa as well as the Menominee, Miami and Ho-Chunk nations. It was also a site of trade, travel, gathering and healing for more than a dozen other Native tribes and is still home to over 100,000 tribal members in the state of Illinois.
Take an Indigenous Tour of Northwestern
Built with the StoryMap JS tool created by Medill’s Knight Lab, the virtual tour makes indigenous connections to campus visible through writing, photos, video, maps, and links to additional online resources. Professor Patty Loew and Stephan Moore, received the 2019 Daniel I. Linzer Grant for Innovation in Diversity and Equity for the creation of this project. Take the virtual tour here.
