Commission on Diversity Awareness

A commission to foster support, respect, awareness and appreciation of diversity among all citizens of Flagstaff.

Land Acknowledgement

The Commission on Diversity Awareness humbly acknowledges the ancestral homelands of this area’s Indigenous nations and original stewards. These lands, still inhabited by Native descendants, border mountains sacred to Indigenous peoples. We honor them, their legacies, their traditions, and their continued contributions. We celebrate their past, present, and future generations who will forever know this place as home.
