Native American Monument

TCU Native American Monument

TCU鈥檚 Native American Monument has significance on many levels and offers multiple learning opportunities, including understanding the monument itself, the process behind its design, and the broader historical context that it represents.

The monument consists of a bronze, circular plaque, mounted in rustic mahogany granite. It contains two statements, along with the seals of TCU and the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes.

The first statement forms an outer circle and is written in both Wichita and English:

This ancient land, for all our relations.

ti?i hira:r?a hira:wis hakitata:rira:rkwe?ekih

The second statement appears in the middle of the plaque: We respectfully acknowledge all Native American peoples who have lived on this land since time immemorial. TCU especially acknowledges and pays respect to the Wichita and Affiliated Tribes, upon whose historical homeland our university is located.
