We would also like to acknowledge the Southern Maidu people to the North and the Patwin Wintun People toward the west of the Sacramento River. We are fully acknowledging that we are operating on the tribal lands of Sacramento’s Indigenous people.
Why Land Acknowledgement? What is its purpose?
Land acknowledgments are important practices for institutions such as businesses and schools to establish. The purpose of a land acknowledgment serves as public recognition and invitation to uplift the narratives of the Indigenous Peoples who have been displaced from their homelands due to colonialism, genocide, and environmental changes.
In order for us to tell the story of Rancho Cordova, we must acknowledge and share the history of the Indigenous Peoples in the Sacramento Region. We invite you, dear reader, on this journey of continued education and service toward celebrating Indigenous Peoples not just in the Sacramento Area, but around the world.
