Land Acknowledgement

Kumeyaay Land Acknowledgment created by Mike Connolly Miskwish (Kumeyaay)

For millennia, the Kumeyaay people have been a part of this land. This land has nourished, healed, protected and embraced them for many generations in a relationship of balance and harmony. As members of the San Diego State community we acknowledge this legacy. We promote this balance and harmony. We find inspiration from this land; the land of the Kumeyaay.

I always feel the SNAG Conferences are a great investment in myself and my career as a maker, artist, and educator. Love seeing old friends, peers, current and former students, and meeting new and emerging artists.

The conference helps me in my development as an artist and metalsmith. It is very important to build community, make networks, new friends and learn about other artists and about the trade. Inspirational.

Besides being a fun time, the conference is an invaluable source for networking and inspiration. Plus I got amazing tool discounts in the vendor room!
