I acknowledge that I am on the territory of the Nisenan (as well as potentially unrecognized tribes) and that they are still here today, though nearly invisible.
I understand that I am on Nisenan land that was never ceded and the original Tribal families have yet to recover from the near genocide of their people.
I also acknowledge people of African descent brought here to these indigenous lands whose labor and bodies have been and still are exploited and brutalized. I honor their ongoing resistance to genocide and colonization.
