This Oct. 10, Auburn University and the Office of Inclusion and Diversity, or OID, recognizes Indigenous Peoples’ Day, which serves as a moment to celebrate indigenous peoples’ vast contributions to this land for generations. At the same time, the university acknowledges the historical and current challenges these communities face.  

There are still tribes in Alabama, such as the Poarch Creek and MOWA Choctaw, that call this state home and have historically had a unique and profound impact. Auburn is committed to supporting the indigenous members of its community.  

The Auburn Family is invited to learn more by getting involved with the Cross Cultural Center for Excellence. For more information on Auburn’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, or DEI, the monthly “This Month in DEI Calendar” and other notes of recognition, please visit OID through its website, on InstagramDEI landing page or by signing up for the OID newsletter.
