Indigenous Land Acknowledgement

Theatre Tuscaloosa recognizes that our organization, infrastructure, and the larger Tuscaloosa community are built on Choctaw lands, while the surrounding region encompasses Creek territories as well.

The histories of many Native nations are deeply rooted in Alabama, while the present and future lives of our neighbors—including the Poarch Creek, Mississippi Choctaws, and other tribal communities—remain closely connected to this land. Theatre Tuscaloosa affirms its commitment to tell stories that reflect and preserve the experiences of all Alabamians, including Alabama’s indigenous people.

Created in consultation with Dr. Mairin Odle, Assistant Professor of American Studies, The University of Alabama
