Denaa Photography Land Acknowledgement
I acknowledge that I live, work, learn, and operate on the traditional, ancestral lands of the Chugach Alutiiq/Sugpiaq people.
These lands have been stewarded for thousands of years since time immemorial by the Chugach Sugpiaq and Ahtna people. The traditional name of this area in Sugt’stun, the language of the Sugpiaq, is Suacit, which means, “the people of the place that rises into view.” Suacit and the surrounding Prince William Sound villages provided a bountiful harvest for the Sugpiat, Ahtna, and Eyak people. Saucit played an integral role as an overland trade route that linked Interior Alaska to Prince William Sound.
I acknowledge the painful history of colonization and the resilience of the Chugach Sugpiaq who still live here today. Valdez is a unique community in that the Valdez Native Tribe serves all local Indigenous residents and is not specific to the Sugpiat people. I acknowledge the ancient and current Indigenous stewards of this land who reside here today.
This land acknowledgment is important to me because too often Indigenous history is washed away, and I strive to include both the ancestral and the contemporary history of the Indigenous people in our region.
Thank you very much.
