Our Purpose

Mariposa Institute is a nonprofit organization dedicated to collective liberation through connection, stewardship, and education.

A Prayer for Land and Peoples
A Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge the land that Mariposa

is situated on

is not ours.

Whose ancestral lands it is exactly

we do not know at this time

because “Northern Pomo” does not tell

who was created here, gathered here, lived here since the beginning of time.

We acknowledge this land was stolen

through lies, heinous violence, and genocide,

whose effects still ripple today.

We aim to do right by the original peoples of this place;

If you trace your origins here, we invite you to return.

We would love to share with you what this place has to offer.

We attempt to steward the lands in our care

in the best ways we know how

And offer our spaces for healing and connection with the land.

We offer them at no or low cost

To tribes and Native-led groups and organizations of our area.

We pray to learn the true names of this place,

tell the truth about the history of Native peoples,

And cocreate a future here together.


Reach Out



We can't wait to connect with you and share this magical space with you when you come
