This gorgeous scenery that we get to enjoy every day is traditional Chochenyo and Karkin Ohlone land.
SCRUF members (and your beautiful pups) have this luxury because of centuries of genocide, land theft, slavery and exploitation of indigenous peoples and resources (among many other atrocities of the U.S. government, past and present).
One small thing we can do to acknowledge this history is contribute to the Shuumi Land Tax, which supports the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust’s work “to facilitate the return of Chochenyo and Karkin Ohlone lands in the San Francisco Bay Area to Indigenous stewardship. Through public education and advocacy, the development of urban gardens, community centers, and sacred arbors, and the slow but steady transformation of our collective relationship with the land we live on, Sogorea Te’ is working to ensure that current and future generations of Indigenous people can thrive in the Bay Area.”
SCRUF just made our first contribution to the Land Trust, and we highly encourage you to participate as well!
