Oakland leaders plan to allow an Indigenous group the right to exclusively use about 5 acres of city land, the first city in California to use municipal property as reparations for European settlers stealing Native American territories.

Mayor Libby Schaaf and the Sogorea Te’ Land Trust, an Indigenous and female-led nonprofit, announced Thursday that the city will grant an easement for Sequoia Point to the land trust and the Confederated Villages of Lisjan, which is the East Bay Ohlone tribe. The Point sits above the Sequoia Bayview Trail, one of the most popular trails in Joaquin Miller Park.
