Land Acknowledgement

“The HDMS community acknowledges and recognizes that HDMS resides on the traditional lands of the Numu (Northern Paiute), Wašiw (Washoe), Newe (Western Shoshone), and Nuwu (Southern Paiute) peoples who have been stewards of this land through the generations. We value the opportunity to live and learn on their sacred ancestral lands. We hope this acknowledgment can help us to learn more about these indigenous groups, learn to be the stewards of the land, and learn to support, elevate, and amplify the voices of those whose land has been taken from them, as well as those who are marginalized.”
