We gratefully acknowledge we gather on the land of the
Uncompahgre band of the Ute Nation, or Nuche, past and present.
We honor this land and the people who lived in harmony with the natural world for generations
before their forced removal.
We are committed to sharing complete history of the land, recognizing and partnering with Native Peoples,
and supporting the advancement of Native places and heritage.
This calls us all to be better stewards of the land we inhabit and the natural resources we benefit from today.
