Adventuring on Native Lands

Our Commitment & Resources

First Descents acknowledges that we provide outdoor adventure programs on the Native Lands and Traditional Territories of  indigenous peoples across the country. We remain committed to being responsible stewards of this land while acknowledging the impacts of colonialism on the peoples who traditionally occupied it. At every First Descents program, we pause to acknowledge the lands we are recreating on and reflect on the privilege we have to adventure and heal in these beautiful places.

To learn more about land acknowledgment, we invite you to visit the Native Governance Center.

For more information about First Descents’ commitment to Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) visit this page or contact us.
