Menlo College is located within lands traditionally stewarded by the Puichon tribe, one of more than 50 original Indigenous groups of the San Francisco Bay Area. The land on which Menlo College sits was ceded to the United States Army as a part of Cessation 274, one of the 18 treaties that tribes living in the Southwest were made to sign between 1851 and 1892. The Army forced the tribes to move off the land and onto reservations. Today’s Indigenous descendants in the Bay Area are commonly known as Ohlone or Muwekma Ohlone.
