UCR Native Student Programs Directed UCR Land Acknowledgement 

https://nasp.ucr.edu
We at UCR would like to respectfully acknowledge and recognize our responsibility to the original and current caretakers of this land, water, and air: the Cahuilla [ka-wee-ahh], Tongva [tong-va], Luiseño [loo-say-ngo], and Serrano [se-ran-oh] peoples and all of their ancestors and descendants, past, present, and future. Today this meeting place is home to many Indigenous peoples from all over the world, including UCR faculty, students, and staff, and we are grateful to have the opportunity to live and work on these homelands. 

…………………………………………………………………………….

The Writers Week emblem, designed from the Agave americana ‘Marginata’ in our local flora, was created to demonstrate our support for initiatives that create a more sustainable campus, community, and state that includes indigenous plans on campus and region. We also support the work of the UCR Office of Sustainability, UCR Botanic Gardens and UCR R’Garden https://rgarden.ucr.edu
