Land Acknowledgement

Soorya Foundation recognizes and acknowledges the Yaavitam, the first people of this ancestral and unceded territory from the Tongva village of Yaangna, now known as Downtown Los Angeles. We pay our deepest respects to their elders, past, present and future. Please take a minute to consider the land and water we live upon, and the many legacies of once vibrant communities stripped of their freedoms and cultural traditions. Today they call themselves Gabrieleño Tongva, the Fernandeño Tataviam and the Ventureño Chumash. We recognize that the Yaavitam are still here and we are committed to lifting up their stories, culture, and lifeways and honoring their land, ocean and sacred spaces.
