Developed over many months of collaboration with leaders from local Tribes, on November 1, 2022, the Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to adopt a Land Acknowledgment for the County of Los Angeles.
The U.S. government officially recognizes nearly 600 Indian tribes in the contiguous 48 states and Alaska. These federally recognized tribes are eligible for funding and services from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, either directly or through contracts, grants, or compacts. The state of California is home to more people of Native heritage than any other state in the United States.
Both the City and County of Los Angeles has a wealth of services available to its residents. There are Native American social service and cultural organizations in Los Angeles County that provide a range of services to the community.
