Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that our department and the CSUEB campus is on the ancestral land
of the Yrgin Chochenyo Ohlone People. We pay respects to the Ohlone people, past,
present, and future.

 We invite you to reflect on the history of the lands and waterways we are all privileged to gather on. We also invite you to reflect on the legacies of colonization embedded within the technologies we use—how some pieces of technology are not available in many poor, marginalized and Indigenous communities, and how many of our technologies leave a carbon footprint that disproportionally affect poor, marginalized, and Indigenous communities. We invite everyone to take some time to consider our roles in reconciliation, decolonization and allyship.

 To learn more about this land and how to directly support Ohlone people by paying a Shuumi Land Tax:
