We acknowledge that we are on the unceded ancestral homeland of the Ramaytush Ohlone, the original people of what is now the San Francisco Peninsula, and we recognize that the Bay Area is the ancestral territory of the Miwok, Yokuts, Patwin and other Ohlone.
This acknowledgement demonstrates a commitment to working to dismantle ongoing legacies of settler colonialism and to recognize the hundreds of Indigenous Nations who continue to uphold their sacred relations across the land. We also pay our respect to Indigenous elders past, present, and future and to those who have stewarded this land throughout the generations.
As guests, we recognize that we benefit from living and working on their traditional homeland. We encourage everyone to remember that the process of colonization is ongoing and still adversely affects the indigenous people from the Bay Area.
Yunakin is the Ramaytush word for village. Please consider donating to the Yunakin Land Tax if you’re a resident who lives along the peninsula in San Francisco County, San Mateo County or Santa Clara County.
