Theodore Payne Foundation acknowledges that it sits on the traditional village of Wiqánga, the ancestral home of the Wiqánvitam who are now known as the Fernandeño Tataviam Band of Mission Indians.

We acknowledge our neighbors: Tongva, Chumash, Tataviam, Kitanemuk and Serrano, the original stewards of what is now Los Angeles County. We are committed to uplifting the names of these lands and community members from the over 200 California First Nations who reside alongside us and honor their Traditional Ecological Knowledge.
