Land Acknowledgment

We acknowledge the land on which we sit and which we occupy at the University of Portland. "The Portland Metro area rests on traditional village sites of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Bands of Chinook, Tualatin, Kalapuya, Molalla, and many other tribes who made their homes along the Columbia River creating communities and summer encampments to harvest and use the plentiful natural resources of the area" (Portland Indian Leaders Roundtable, 2018).  We take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land.

To learn more about Portland's Native diverse and vibrant community, please read Leading with Tradition, a document created by the Portland Indian Leaders Roundtable.
