Our Relations

We are all related, and there are many kinds of relations.


It would be impossible to acknowledge the innumerable relations that fill our lives and sustain our work.

We grew up and live on the unceded lands of the Ohlone people on the east side of the San Francisco Bay, and of the Maidu and Nisenan peoples in present day Nevada County, California. 

Eli’s ancestors are Ashkenazi Jews. Jesse’s mother’s people are also Jews. His father’s ancestors come from across Western Europe and Eastern Turtle Island.

Below are some of the people and organizations we are connected to, who support us, and whom we support, including our guide crew, our advisory council, our apprentices and our teachers. This is a work in progress.
