Guest Editorial: Land Acknowledgement for Native American Heritage Monthcsudhbulletin November 22, 2019 0 COMMENTS
“We acknowledge that the land on which we are gathered here today is the home and traditional land belonging to the Tongva Nation. Today we come with respect and gratitude for the Tongva people who still consider themselves the caretakers of this land. It is through their examples that we are reminded of our greater responsibility to take care of Mother Earth and to take care of each other.”
— Land Acknowledgement wording approved by Jimi Castillo, Pipe Carrier and Spiritual Leader from the Tongva Nation, a people that settled in the present day Los Angeles Basin and numbered approximately 5,000-10,000 before European contact
