On whose tribal land
do you stand?
I acknowledge the traditional stewards of the lands whose ancestors have resided here since Time Immemorial. Many Indigenous people thrive in this place - alive and strong (a). I express gratitude to the Tongva, Kucamongan, and Gabrielino people past and present for loving and caring for this land that was stolen from them.
In response, I express my care by donating to the First Nations Development Institute to support healthy Native communities in California.
I also purpose to buy and read books by Native authors and as my knowledge increases on how to be a better ally I step up to honor those who have come before and those I stand beside.
