The USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research acknowledges our presence on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Tongva people, the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and Southern Channel Islands). Along with the Tongva, we also recognize the Chumash, Tataviam, Serrano, Cahuilla, and Payomkawichum peoples for the land that USC also occupies around Southern California. We pay respects to their elders past and present.
