Indigenous Land Acknowledgement
The American Craft Council is broadcasting San Francisco Bay Area Craft Week from its Minneapolis headquarters, residing on the traditional, ancestral and contemporary lands of the Dakota people, land ceded in the Treaties of 1837 and 1851. We also acknowledge this project is rooted in the Huichin and Yelamu, also known as Oakland and San Francisco, on the unceded territories of Chochenyo and Ramaytush Ohlone and Yelamu peoples.
We understand and recognize Land Acknowledgment as a transformative act meant to confront our place on Native Lands and to build mindfulness of our present participation in colonial legacies. At ACC, we affirm our responsibility to amplify Indigenous voices through a renewed commitment to incorporate Indigenous knowledge in our narratives on craft. We stand in solidarity with local Indigenous communities, and we respect local Indigenous protocol.
