We acknowledge that we are living in the village of Yelanu, on unceded Ramaytush Ohlone land, to which the Coastanoan Rumsen Miwok also have a traditional ceremonial claim. This place was called San Francisco by colonists who displaced, enslaved, tortured, raped and trafficked native peoples in a multitude of genocides which are ongoing.
We recognize that we benefit from living and working on their traditional homeland and make an annual donation @ ramaytush.org/donate, a local land tax which is organized by and for indigenous peoples; and we welcome you to do the same.
Attend a Big Time. Go to a Bear Dance. Learn about the history of traditional stewardship on the land where you live and work.
There can be no peace without justice and no justice without reparations.
