Celebrating Native Heritage this November

Среда, Октябрь 26, 2022

November is National Native American Heritage Month, which honors and celebrates the history and culture of Native people.  

The land that we now call Portland, Oregon rests on the traditional village sites of the Multnomah, Kathlamet, Clackamas, bands of the Chinook, Tualatin Kalapuya, Mollalah and many others who made their homes along the Columbia River. Multnomah is a band of Chinooks that lived in this area. We thank the descendants of these tribes for being the original stewards and protectors of these lands since time immemorial. We acknowledge the ongoing systems of genocide, relocation and assimilation that still impact many Indigenous/Native American families and communities today.  

A special thank you to the Portland State University Indigenous Nations Studies program for crafting this land acknowledgment.
