Land Honoring

We honor and acknowledge the people of the Klamath Modoc Tribes who were the original stewards of this land. We recognize the unique, enduring and challenging relationship that exists between Indigenous people and their traditional territories. Let this acknowledgement serve as a reminder of our ongoing efforts to recognize, honor, reconcile, and partner with the Modoc people whose lands and water we benefit from today. This calls us to become even better stewards of this land we inhabit as well!
