Miramar College Campus Land Acknowledgement Statement

Miramar College assembled a Land Acknowledgement Task Force in August. That group released the following campus Land Acknowledgement statement on Nov. 4, 2022:

"We recognize that San Diego Miramar College sits on the ancestral homeland of the Kumeyaay people who have lived in this area for over 10,000 years and honor the past, present, and future stewardship of this land by Kumeyaay peoples. We acknowledge our occupation of unratified treaty territory and the systemic injustices that occupation of this land has perpetuated for Native peoples of this region. We pay respect to the Indigenous people of San Diego County - past, present, and future - and their continuing presence in their homeland and throughout their historical diaspora.

A website with resources has been established and is available at: https://sdmiramar.edu/services/lead/landacknowledgment

The Land Acknowledgement Task Force was spearheaded by the Miramar College LEAD Office (Leading Equity, Anti-Racism and Diversity) and campus leadership.
