Land Acknowledgement

Starr King Unitarian Universalist Church acknowledges that Hayward, California, is Ohlone land. For thousands of years this land was inhabited by people who lived here peacefully and cared for it in a way that honored all that was here before us. We hope that we can amplify that truth and learn from the Ohlone people what it means to be stewards of this beautiful land, and to be inspired to form meaningful relationships with local indigenous peoples working to protect this sacred land, repair injustices, and move forward together in honorable ways.
