The land was occupied through colonialism and genocide by the Spanish, Mexican and the United States. In the 1700's there was an estimated 300,000 indigenous people in the Bay Area; now an estimated 10,000 living Ohlone members. Most of the people were killed through disease brought by the occupiers, murder, and human trafficking on and around the Missions.
The Spanish centralized their efforts through Santa Clara Mission now on Santa Clara University Campus. This continued through Mexico and now the United States, California, and San Jose governments, and non-indigenous residents. It is important to acknowledge and know that this harm through colonization continues. We work to move toward a more just, healed, and decolonized world. We are grateful to the Tamien Nation for continuing to steward the land. May Land Back continue.
