St. Mark’s Square sits on the unceded ancestral homeland of the Ramaytush Ohlone peoples, who are the original inhabitants of the San Francisco Peninsula and who were the first to gather, love, grow, celebrate, cry, and sing in this place. We acknowledge and mourn the exploitation of the Ramaytush Ohlone peoples and the destruction of their ancestors, homeland, and culture. We honor the Ramaytush Ohlone for their enduring commitment to this land, Mother Earth, and to all of Creation. We honor their ancestors and all other members of their communities. We value indigenous wisdom in working toward the healing of creation. We strive to grow toward right relationships with Indigenous people and the Earth. With openness of heart and spirit, we hold ourselves accountable to respect and steward the land, its grasses and trees and creatures great and small. Let it be so in all our relations.
