Updates for Week 4, Fall Quarter
In honor of Indigenous Peoples Day, the Markaz acknowledges that our center resides on the traditional, ancestral, unceded lands of the Muwekma Ohlone people. This land was and continues to be of great importance to the Ohlone people, and consistent with our values of community and diversity, we have a responsibility to make visible and honor this fact. 

We celebrate the richness, resilience, and excellence of Stanford's Native American community, today and always. We are honored to be in community with the NACC and encourage you to follow them on Instagram.
