Land Acknowledgement Statement
The Center for Race & Gender recognizes that Berkeley sits on the territory of Xučyun*, the ancestral and unceded land of the Chochenyo Ohlone, the successors of the historic and sovereign Verona Band of Alameda County. This land was and continues to be of great importance to the Ohlone people. We recognize that every member of the Berkeley community has, and continues to benefit from the use and occupation of this land, since the institution’s founding in 1868. Consistent with our values of community and diversity, we have a responsibility to acknowledge and make visible the university’s relationship to Native peoples. By offering this Land Acknowledgement, we affirm Indigenous sovereignty and will work to hold University of California, Berkeley, more accountable to the needs of American Indian and Indigenous peoples.
In recognition that Center for Race & Gender benefits from this history, we pay the Shuumi Land Tax as a small way to contribute to the healing of this history, the sovereignty of Ohlone people, and the preservation of their culture.
*An alternate spelling of Xučyun is Huchiun.
