Land Acknowledgement Statement
We should take a moment to acknowledge the land on which we gather for this festival. For thousands of years, this land has been the home of Patwin people, including the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation today. The Patwin people have remained committed to the stewardship of this land over many centuries. It has been cherished and protected, as elders have instructed the young through generations. We are honored and grateful to be gathered here on their traditional lands.
