Native American Heritage Month and ETR's Land Acknowledgment

By Nasbah Ben | November 23, 2021
Director of Tribal Programs, ETR

As a non-profit organization that advances health equity, we can not address health equity among Native American Tribes in California and beyond without first acknowledging that they are the original inhabitants of the land where our offices are located:

Scott’s Valley office (95066) – Awaswas, Ohlone, and Popeloutchom (Amah Mutsun) 

Sacramento office (95825) – MiwkoɁ WaaliɁ and Nisenan 

Oakland office (94612) – Chochenyo, Muwekma, and Ohlone 

We affirm our commitment to working with Tribal nations to address health disparities that have deep roots in discrimination, historical trauma, and systemic issues. We continue to build trust, amplify Indigenous voices, and honor Tribal sovereignty.

Learn more about our work with Tribal nations, such as our efforts in tobacco control with the Tribal Community Coordinating Center and our catalog of sexual health curricula that includes Respecting the Circle of Life.

To learn which Indigenous territories you are standing on, text your zip code to (907) 312-5085.
