Flagstaff Meetings to Take Note of Indigenous Lands

FLAGSTAFF – Flagstaff City Council is set to begin its meetings with a recognition honoring the ancestral lands of indigenous tribes in the region.

Council members on Tuesday expressed support for the reading of the thank-you statement at the start of upcoming meetings. A formal vote is scheduled for Tuesday, the Arizona Daily Sun reported.

The agenda for the council meeting stated that the recognition was intended to “officially recognize and reflect on the attempt to erase indigenous peoples and the historical trauma caused by colonialism” in order to promote understanding and the resolution of disputes.

Flagstaff is close to the Navajo Nation, which includes parts of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. The Hopi, Hualapai and Havasupai tribes are among others with reservations in northern Arizona.

Previously considered by the city’s Indigenous commission, the recognition was inspired by that used by a neighborhood association in Flagstaff, said council member Austin Aslan.

The recognition considered by the council indicates that the council “humbly recognizes the ancestral lands of the indigenous nations of this region and the original stewards. These lands, still inhabited by indigenous descendants, border mountains sacred to indigenous peoples. We honor them, their legacies, their traditions and their continuing contributions. We celebrate their past, present and future generations who will forever know this place as their home. “
