sogorea’te land trust

The Sogorea Te Land Trust is an urban Indigenous women-led community organization that facilitates the return of Chochenyo and Karkin Ohlone lands in the San Francisco Bay Area to Indigenous stewardship.

“My dream is to have a dance house, a roundhouse, here in the Bay Area like our ancestors did, where my grandchildren and great-grandchildren can dance. For all of the Ohlone people in the area to be able to come together, to have a sacred place, to have those ceremonies again. There has not been a roundhouse on our homelands for many, many years. Being able to create that and to bring those dances back is important, it’s a pivotal point in our healing process.”
