Indigenous Land Acknowledgement 

Earth Activist Training is honored and humbled to be located on the land of the Ramaytush Ohlone peoples, and hold its in-person intensives on the land of the Kashaya Pomo peoples, in what is known as Northern California.

We recognize that we have so much to learn about how to live in harmony and in abundance with these sacred ecosystems, which the Indigenous peoples of California have stewarded since time immemorial.

We recognize that the Ramaytush Ohlone and Kashaya Pomo peoples understand the interconnectedness of all things and have maintained harmony with nature for millennia. We honor them for their enduring commitment to Mother Earth. As the Indigenous protectors of this land, the Ramaytush Ohlone and Kashaya Pomo peoples have never ceded, lost, nor forgotten their responsibilities as the caretakers of this place, as well as for all of the peoples who reside on their traditional territory.

We recognize that we benefit from living and working on their traditional homeland. As uninvited guests, we affirm their sovereign rights as First Peoples and wish to pay respect to the Ancestors, Elders, and, and Relatives of the Ramaytush Ohlone and Kashaya Pomo communities.

We recognize that to respectfully honor the Ramaytush Ohlone and Kashaya Pomo peoples, we must must embrace and collaborate meaningfully to record Indigenous knowledge in how we care for all peoples.
