Renaming Waite Ranch
This is an opportunity for the community to come together and make a decision that reflects the values, aspirations, and cultural significance of that place. Community members are encouraged to
share their thoughts, suggestions, and personal connections to the land, creating a platform for open dialogue and collective decision making. The Naming Poll during the Tribal Restoration event will take place at the language table.
