Land Acknowledgment

The MRC honors and recognizes the leadership of the Native American Health Alliance (NAHA) and the Association of Native American Medical Students (ANAMS) in their collaborative efforts with the Ohlone representatives to create the Land Acknowledgmentt for UCSF.

We would like to acknowledge the Ramaytush Ohlone people, who are the traditional custodians of this land. We pay our respects to the Ramaytush Ohlone elders, past, present, and future who call this place, the land that UCSF sits upon, their home. We are proud to continue their tradition of coming together and growing as a community. We thank the Ramaytush Ohlone community for their stewardship and support, and we look forward to strengthening our ties as we continue our relationship of mutual respect and understanding.

UCSF is pleased to provide the following Land Acknowledgment statement that can be used in oral or written form at events as deemed appropriate. Interested groups and individuals are encouraged to use the following language, without edit.
