UC WMRC Land Acknowledgement

In part of observing California Native American Day 2021, UC WMRC has recently developed and implemented a land acknowledgment statement as an expression of gratitude and act of conciliation to the first Peoples of the Owens Valley and White Mountains.

UC WMRC acknowledges the Nüümü (Paiute) & Newe (Shoshone) as the first Peoples & traditional land stewards of Payahuunadü & Koho (the Owens Valley & White Mountains). As a facility managed by a land grant institution, we pay our respects to the Müaddübü (Elders) and Hümü (relations) of past, present, and emerging.
