Indigenous Land Acknowledgement 

 

I acknowledge that I live, work, and play on land that is the ancestral and unceded territory of the Ohlone-Ramaytush-Yelamu people. 

 

The Ramaytush (pronounced rah-my-toosh) - Yelamu are the only original people of the southern part of San Francisco named by settlers. Since time immemorial the Ramaytush continue to live on this land. I am grateful to have the opportunity to live, work, learn, and play on this land. I stand with their struggles for liberation, affirm my responsibility to amplify Indigenous voices, acknowledge the past and the present, and seek that this land return to the Ohlone’s stewardship.
