Indigenous Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge the 22 Native Nations of Arizona, to whom these lands have belonged to for centuries. 

 

We respectfully acknowledge that Codefy is on the lands of the Akimel O’odham and the Piipaash people. The territory of the O’odham and Piipaash residing along the Salt River was originally recognized by the U.S government in 1879. A subsequent executive order reduced the Salt River portion of the reserve from approximately 680,000 acres to just 46,627 acres, and separated the Salt River O’odham-Piipaash from their relatives living along the Gila River.

 

We acknowledge the genocide, theft and systemic injustices against the Indigenous people. We celebrate the resilience and the contributions of the Indigenous people, and respect their sovereignty and right to self-determination.

 

We seek to be allies and to join hands in friendship and solidarity with our Native communities and students.
