I respectfully acknowledge that I live and work in Tucson, the ancestral lands of four Indigenous Sonoran Desert communities: Hohokam, O’odham, Sobaipuri, and Tohono O’odham (Papago). They are the past, present, and future caretakers of this land and I thank them for their stewardship throughout generations.
