Land Acknowledgment


Acknowledging our past includes recognizing that we are on stolen land. Our annual flagship event and many of us who organize our events occupy stolen land that was never ceded by the Kumeyaay and Luiseño peoples. The Kumeyaay and Luiseño peoples were forcibly removed through violence and atrocious human rights violations, and face disproportionate disparities that persist today. We urge people to join us in learning more about Kumeyaay history, to join and follow the efforts of the Kumeyaay Defense Against the Wall and the Strong Hearted Native Women’s Coalition, to raise awareness around the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women, and take steps to actively support and act in solidarity with Indigenous-led groups.
