Through innovative partnerships with public and private landowners, the Amah Mutsun Land Trust works to conserve and restore Indigenous cultural and natural resources within the traditional territories of Indigenous Mutsun and Awaswas peoples. They steward these lands and waters by combining traditional resource and environmental management with contemporary approaches, ensuring a resilient future for all inhabitants, and fulfilling the Amah Mutsun’s sacred obligation to Creator to protect and care for Mother Earth; and they research and teach the ways of nature—returning to the path of traditional ecological knowledge that their ancestors followed for thousands of years.
We are Amah Mutsun, of the lands known to us as Popeloutchom.
Home to our four-legged, winged, finned, and plant kin;
they have provided us with all that we needed for millennia—
we will care for them.
Resting place of those that came before us and cradle of those yet to come,
they are sacred—we will protect them.
