Something we deeply love about Rancho Cordova is the region's rich and diverse community. We would like to celebrate and honor Indigenous Peoples' voices and stories by sharing a land acknowledgment.
Land acknowledgments serve as public recognition and an invitation to uplift the narratives of the Indigenous Peoples who have been displaced from their homelands due to colonialism, genocide, and environmental changes.
We honor and thank the Nisenan (Nice-ih-NUN), Miwok (MEE-Wock), Cayuse (KY-yoose), Umatilla (you-muh-TILL-uh), and Walla Walla peoples as our community partners and the traditional inhabitants of the territories of Rancho Cordova, Sacramento, and surrounding areas.
They have stewarded these beautiful lands throughout generations, lands that everyone who has visited Rancho Cordova has been privileged to enjoy and share with their loved ones. We do not take this for granted.
The Visit Native California initiative has inspired our team to be more conscious about our efforts and impact in this area, and this acknowledgment is just one humble step in a much greater conversation. Going forward, Visit Rancho Cordova is eager to learn more about how we can support local Indigenous organizations in our region.
