At the December 2022 board meeting, Sakura Foundation officially adopted the following Land Acknowledgement which will be read at our meetings, events, and programming going forward:

“Sakura Foundation honors and acknowledges that the land on which we operate is the traditional territory of the Ute, Cheyenne, and Arapaho Peoples. We also recognize the 48 contemporary tribal nations that are historically tied to the lands that make up the State of Colorado. Consistent with our values of community and inclusion, we have a responsibility to acknowledge, honor, and make visible the Foundation’s relationship to Native land and people.”

We invite you to learn more about Land Acknowledgements and their importance:
