This post continues my ongoing blog series that acknowledges the ancestral lands on which the National Archives’ buildings are situated across the country. This series of acknowledgements is a simple way to offer our recognition and respect to the people who once lived on these lands.
The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is located in Yorba Linda, California, which is situated on the ancestral lands of the Hotuuknga Tribe which was a branch of the Tongva Nation.
Enter your address in this interactive map of Traditional Native Lands to see who once lived where you are now.
My thanks to Meghan Lee-Parker, Archivist, Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum, for the research and information she provided for this post.
