Our Approach, or Practicing Pikyav
Acknowledging that individuals and groups at UC Berkeley and other academic institutions have not always acted in the best interest of California Indian Tribes, Karuk-UC Berkeley Collaborative members and our allies hope that we can be part of a larger effort to begin mending problematic relationships among universities, researchers and Indigenous peoples.
