Land Acknowledgement

Boulder Shambhala Center Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that the land upon which the Boulder Shambhala Center sits in Boulder County is on traditional territories and ancestral homelands of the Cheyenne, Arapaho, Ute, Apache, Comanche, Kiowa, Lakota, Pueblo and Shoshone Nations. Further, we acknowledge the 48 contemporary tribal nations historically tied to the lands that comprise what is now called Colorado.

We honor Chief Left Hand (Nawath), leader of the last Hinóno’éí band that spent their winters in the Boulder Valley. In our daily lives, let us honor and respect that the Boulder Valley is home to the Hinóno’éí people and to many other tribes that also camped, hunted, and traded here for centuries. We honor the fact that Native people of many Indigenous nations live here today.
