Acknowledgment of the Original People of the Land

Acknowledgement of the Original People of the Land We would like to acknowledge that our school sits on the traditional lands of the Indigenous People of the Lower Columbia. We offer recognition and deep respect to the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, and to the many indigenous people, federally recognized or not, who have cared and resided on this land since time immemorial through centuries of genocidal policies and systemic racism. We honor the resilience and tradition of the Cowlitz Indian Tribe and Indigenous People of the Lower Columbia with gratitude.
