We will be gathering on the land of the American Indian Council of Mariposa County, Inc. (aka Southern Sierra Miwuk Nation), Bishop Paiute Tribe, Bridgeport Indian Colony, Mono Lake Kutzadika’a, North Fork Rancheria of Mono Indians of California, Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians, and the Tuolumne Band of Me-Wuk Indians.
The United in Yosemite planning committee is reaching out the seven traditionally associated Tribes of Yosemite National Park for collaborative conversations around how this festival — and climbers in Yosemite — can contribute to a meaningful and thoughtful relationship.
14 complimentary tickets will be set aside for members of the seven traditionally associated Tribes. We are in conversation with community members about ideas for stewardship projects, mutual aid, and more. Stay tuned.
We encourage all participants to visit the Yosemite Valley Visitor Center and Museum to learn more about the First People of the area, their stories, and their continued connection to this place. Another resource is the book Voices of the People. This book, in the words of the seven traditionally associated Tribes of Yosemite National Park, gathers their diverse histories, family chronicles, and visions for the future.
