Zaccho Dance Theatre is located on the unceded ancestral homeland of the Ramaytush Ohlone peoples, the original inhabitants of the San Francisco Peninsula and Bayview Hunters Point. We honor the Ramaytush Ohlone peoples for their enduring commitment to this planet, Mother Earth. The Ramaytush Ohlone have never ceded, lost, nor forgotten their responsibilities as the caretakers of this place, as well as for all peoples who reside in their traditional territory. As uninvited guests, we affirm their sovereign rights as First Peoples and wish to honor and to pay our respects to the Ancestors, Elders, and Relatives of the Ramaytush Ohlone Community.


We recognize the contributions of immigrant and American-born workers of African, Asian, and Central & South American descent whose labor remains hidden in the shadows but still contributes to the well-being of our collective community. Despite the abolishment of slavery, our economy continues to rely on the exploited labor of incarcerated people, largely people of color. We commit to countering the erasure that fuels settler coloniality through due crediting of past, present, and future Indigenous, Black, and immigrant cultural labor.


Zaccho Dance Theatre proudly resides in and serves San Francisco's Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood. We recognize and value the many important community contributions of Italian, Asian, Asia Pacific, South & Central American, and African descent neighbors who entered the region through migration or compulsion. Bayview Hunters Point is currently in recovery from generations of environmental pollution and neglect, which has left many community members vulnerable to health and economic disparities. We commit to collaborating with the many extraordinary community members and organizations to ensure the progress/advancement and well-being of the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood. We invite you to join us in working to create change.
