We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is the ancestral home of the Chochenyo-speaking Ohlone people. This land has a deep history and a community of people who have lived here for thousands of years. For those of us who are not Indigenous to this land, the Shuumi Land Tax is a way to acknowledge this history and the Ohlone community.
