The Morgan Library & Museum stands on land that is part of Lenapehoking, the unceded ancestral homeland of the Lenape people. We acknowledge and pay respect to the original peoples of Lenapehoking, and we recognize the enduring significance of these lands and waterways for the Lenape Nations and the many Indigenous communities who live here today.

We also recognize the violent history of settler colonialism on the island of Manaháhtaan and beyond, and its ongoing impacts on Indigenous peoples and lands. We are committed to confronting this legacy in our work at the Morgan, and to honoring Indigenous voices.
