Two Lynchpin Road recognizes that we are on the ancestral lands of the Coast Miwok, Pomo, and Wappo, who are the original caretakers of the Sonoma County, California area.
We respectfully acknowledge the Indigenous peoples who have been stewarding and maintaining relationship on this land as knowledge keepers for millennia.
As an organization, we are dedicated to understanding and educating others about historical and ongoing connections between land conservation, disaster impacts, and social inequities. This includes the histories of genocide, forced removal and displacement, and broken promises with Indigenous peoples as a part of American history.
This acknowledgment serves as a gesture of respect to the land we are located on.
