We are on stolen land
We work to achieve conservation goals in Mendocino County and beyond. We humbly recognize that the lands we work to protect have been stewarded by Native peoples for millennia and were taken from the Pomo and Yuki peoples without their consent. We mourn the atrocities committed upon Indigenous people and the lands they hold sacred and recognize that injustices continue to this day. We strive to achieve conservation in a way that honors past stewards, recognizes that we are on stolen land and works toward a better future for all members of our community.

Includes information about the Indian reservation established in 1856 at what is now known as MacKerricher State Park and the horrible conditions there as well as detailed accounts of the “war of extermination” waged by the State of California and forced relocation of many tribes to seized Yuki lands, now known as Round Valley.
