Ohlone land acknowledgement:

Ohlone is the collective name of the indigenous people of central California. Pogonip and UCSC, where we will enjoy our hike, were originally inhabited by the Uypi Tribe of the Awaswas Nation. Today these lands are represented by the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band who are the descendants of the Awaswas and Mutsun Nations whose ancestors were taken to Mission Santa Cruz and Mission San Juan Bautista during Spanish colonization of the Central Coast. Today the Amah Mutsun are working hard to fulfill their obligation to the Creator to care for and steward the Earth and all living things through relearning efforts and the Amah Mutsun Land Trust.
