Magic Theatre sits on the unceded land of the Ramaytush (Rah-my-toosh) Ohlone (Oh-loh-nee) peoples, also known as the Marina District of San Francisco, at the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture.
As a part of your visit to the theatre, consider taking a walk or picnicking along the Marina Green, the expanse of grass between Fort Mason and the Presidio. The Marina Green is lined on one side by spectacular houses, and on the other side by the Bay and marinas. Take in lovely views of the Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and Angel Island.
Magic Theatre's address is:
Fort Mason Center
2 Marina Blvd., Bldg D.
San Francisco, CA 94123
Magic acknowledges the Ramaytush Ohlone community, their elders both past and present as well as future generations. We affirm their continuing presence in their homelands.
Spanish and European colonizers violently displaced these communities beginning in the 18th century. The Ramaytush Ohlone people cherished and protected this land over many centuries. We are grateful to be here today on their traditional lands and recognize that the Ohlone are still here, and are not relics of the past-- colonization is an ongoing process, with Native lands still occupied due to deceptive and broken treaties.
We hope this acknowledgement is one small step toward correcting the stories and practices that erase Indigenous people’s history and culture and toward inviting and honoring the truth.
Magic encourages its visitors to learn about the past and present of the Ohlone people and the oppressive history of Fort Mason.
Since our activities–-especially in this time of Covid-19--are shared digitally on the Internet, we’d also like to acknowledge the legacy of colonization embedded within our technology. Technological devices and high speed internet are not readily available in many indigenous communities. These technologies leave significant carbon footprints that contribute to changing climates that disproportionately affect indigenous peoples worldwide.
We invite you to join us in acknowledging and dismantling the ongoing legacies of settler colonialism.
