From the website: “Territory acknowledgement is a way that people insert an awareness of Indigenous presence and land rights in everyday life. This is often done at the beginning of ceremonies, lectures, or any public event. It can be a subtle way to recognize the history of colonialism and a need for change in settler colonial societies.”

Welcome from Lourdes Escalante, Program Manager for Alianza Indigena Sin Fronteras/ Indigenous Alliance Without Borders and opening blessing from Jerry Carlisle, Vice Chair of the San Xavier District of the Tohono O’odham Nation.
