A sacred island off the coast of Northern California was officially returned to a Native American tribe on Monday after more than 150 years.

The Associated Press reports the small island is considered the center of the spiritual and physical universe to the Wiyot Tribe, which was deeded the land in a packed signing ceremony.

The article goes on to state the following:

“It’s a really good example of resilience because Wiyot people never gave up the dream,” tribal administrator Michelle Vassel said, according to the AP. “It’s a really good story about healing and about coming together, of community.”

“The tribe was decimated in 1860, when scores of elders, women and children were wiped out during a raid by settlers while the tribe’s men were away gathering supplies,” the AP reports. “Since then, the now 600-member tribe has been making small strides toward regaining the land it lost.”
