The Indigenous Land Our Community Occupies

The Lewis & Clark College Outdoors program recognizes that we work, play, explore, and learn on the traditional lands of peoples including the Kalapuya, the Northern Molala, the Multnomah, the Tualatin, and the Cowlitz nations. These names are often left out of the stories of these lands. We recognize their rightful ownership of these lands and that, those of us who are settlers, only have the opportunities to have these unique learning and explorative experiences because of the forceful removal of indigenous peoples from them.

While it is part of our educational process to exercise leave no trace, conservation, protection, and rehabilitation principles, this acknowledgement calls us to commit to continuing to learn how to be better stewards of the land we inhabit. We take this moment to offer respect to those from past and present that have made activities such as these in places such as these, possible.
