Our Land Acknowledgement Statement: Tahoe XC and TCCSEA are based in Tahoe City, California, near Lake Tahoe, or “DaɁaw” (the lake) or “DaɁaw Ɂaga” (the edge of the lake), which is the ancestral territory of the wašiw, or Washoe, people. The Washoe people have lived in this area for thousands of years and are owed a debt for land, history, plant and animal knowledge, and stewardship for how to care for this area.
This land acknowledgement is only a small part of how we can support Indigenous communities. We stand in solidarity with Native American nations by, in this small way, honoring the history and people of this place. We know it is not enough. But it is a start. Perhaps, if you’re reading this, take a moment to acknowledge the history, and the people, of whatever land you are standing on.
