Dedicated to the celebration and preservation of the rich history of Millbrae

Ohlone Ramaytush Land Acknowledgment

The following statement is read at the start of all Millbrae Historical Society meetings and events in order to acknowledge the cultural history of our area:

"The Millbrae Historical Society acknowledges that we occupy the unceded ancestral, traditional, and contemporary homeland of the Ramaytush Ohlone peoples, who are the original inhabitants of the San Francisco Peninsula. We wish to pay our respects to the Ancestors and Relatives of the Ramaytush Community and to affirm their sovereign rights as First Peoples. We recognize that the Ramaytush Ohlone have lived in harmony with nature for millennia, and that to achieve a truly ecologically sustainable future for Millbrae, we must embrace Indigenous traditional ecological knowledge in how we care for the city’s lands, waters, and all its people. We will continue to uplift and foster a meaningful relationship with the Ramaytush Ohlone community, and we encourage all to visit to learn more about the Ramaytush Ohlone people."
