With respect, we acknowledge the Nevada County Campus of AVѧԺ as the traditional and unceded homelands of the Nisenan peoples. For countless generations, the Nisenan have carried out their responsibility as stewards of this place originally known as Daspah. AVѧԺ commits to an ongoing relationship with the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribe and their future generations who are an integral part of the AVѧԺ community.
