“I am so inspired by Sogorea Te’s bold and beautiful vision for the Bay Area. Reclaiming land under the stewardship of Indigenous women, preserving green space, building community centers, the Land Trust is creating solutions to so many of the problems we face.” Best wishes to Fellow Ariel Luckey (Mentor Brenda Way) as he begins his new role as the Development Director at the Sogorea Te Land Trust, an Indigenous women-led land trust working to rematriate traditional Ohlone land in the East Bay. Part of his work will be expanding participation in and the reach of the Shuumi Land Tax, a voluntary annual financial contribution that non-Indigenous people who live in the East Bay and companies and organizations based in the East Bay are invited to pay, as a model of hyper-local grassroots fundraising and of community-based reparations. He will be working closely with Corrina Gould, a Chochenyo and Karkin Ohlone leader who has been Ariel’s friend and collaborator for over a decade. Learn more at: sogoreate-landtrust.com.
