Land Acknowledgement

 

With gratitude and humility, I offer the continuing work of reparations, abolition, and Land Back through Expansive Expressions which is based in the unceded, stolen lands of the Tonkawa and Payaya peoples of the Coahuiltecan band, original and indigenous stewards of this place now known as San Antonio, Texas.

As an accomplice in the work of decolonization and dismantling white settler/supremacist systems of oppression, I am committed to naming and acknowledging these lands and indigenous peoples as well as continually addressing and deconstructing my own privilege and internalized settler/colonizer thoughts and behaviors. With intention and respect, I honor our elders both past and present and seek to work in collaboration with all Nations with whom I reside on this land.
