Land Acknowledgement

At Talking Talons Youth Leadership, we acknowledge the lands where we live, work and play as the ancestral homelands of the Indigenous peoples of the so –called US Southwest. We pay our respect to these traditional stewards, past, present and emerging, who have been the custodians of these lands and waters since time immemorial. This acknowledgment only becomes meaningful when combined with accountable relationships and informed actions. It is only a first step. We respect the right to Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination and are committed to uplifting Indigenous voices while being better listeners, learners, and partners. 


The Talking Talons Youth Leadership office and Thrift Store are located on the ancestorial lands of the Tigua (Tiwa) & Pueblos peoples.
