“And it’s important that institutions that are proclaiming that they are offering an education to the community do their due diligence, to recognize that the perspectives of history that have been taught previously have not been inclusive.” – Kanyon Sayers-Roods

The following recording is from this event

“As I write this article, it is appropriate to start by recognizing that San Francisco State University rests on occupied Ohlone Ramaytush territories. With respect I acknowledge them as the original keepers of the land we stand on.”

“This land acknowledgment and others alike is a show of respect to indigenous people. Land acknowledgment is a new concept in the United States, but Canada, New Zealand and Australia have all systematically acknowledged Native land and enacted in policy before any ceremony that homage to the land and its original peoples be recognized.”

“Acknowledging that people are still here. These languages are surviving, these people are still surviving, the communities are still strong,” Campbell, originally from Hayward, California, said. “By acknowledging that this is their land, which is something that we ignore, just because it happened doesn’t mean that it’s OK that it happened.”
