Hayward, CA: As a member of the Cal State East Bay community with an office on the Hayward campus, I acknowledge that I am a guest on the unceded land of the First People of this region, the present-day Muwekma Ohlone Tribe of the San Francisco Bay Area (formerly Verona Band of Alameda County). I support the sovereignty of this Chochenyo-Ohlone-speaking tribal group and other Indigenous peoples. This acknowledgment was created by the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe with the support of the CSUEB Indigenous Acknowledgment Collective and is a living document (CSUEB Muwekma Ohlone Tribal Land Acknowledgment - Full Version).
I am still gathering information on what I can do beyond acknowledging those whose land and labor allow me to live, work, and learn in the spaces I occupy.
