I reside and work on unceded Muwekma and Ramaytush Ohlone land.
I live in Emeryville and work in San Francisco. Emeryville contained one of the most well researched occupational Shellmounds, of the Muwekma Ohlone people that once covered the San Francisco bay area. San Francisco was home to the Ramaytush Ohlone. The Lisjan (Ohlone) are made up of the seven Tribes that were directly enslaved at Mission San Jose in Fremont, CA and Mission Dolores in San Francisco, and their descents continue to live and advocate for protection of the lands and their cultural heritage.
One concrete way to support these efforts is through the Shummi Land Tax, a voluntary annual financial contribution that non-Indigenous people living on traditional Chochenyo and Karkin Ohlone territory make to support the critical work of the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust. I encourage you to research the indigenous people and their advocacy work wherever you reside as all non-indigenous people continue to benefit from the occupation of this stolen land.
