Pasadena City College is a learning community within the indigenous homelands of people who have been known as the Gabrielieño Band of Mission Indians of the Sisitcanongna (pronounced "Shesh-i-i-kuan-ga") Village and Kizh Nation. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this land on which we gather. PCC and its faculty, staff, and students recognize that we are all simultaneously teachers, learners, and guests on these lands. This land acknowledgment is a small part of an ongoing process of working to be in good relationship with the people of the land, and embodying equity in our practices and policies.
