Land Acknowledgement Portland, Oregon

Scion Staffing recognizes that our office, located in the Portland Metro area resides on the traditional village sites of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Bands of Chinook, Tualatin, Kalapuya, Molalla, as well as many other tribes who have made their homes next to the body of water known as the Columbia River and in the area of Portland, Oregon.

Indigenous people of these tribes have tended the land, created tribal communities, and called this area their home for over the past 11,000 years.

As a company that thrives on, and is committed to a foundation of diversity, equity, and inclusion, it is imperative that we recognize our city of the greater Portland metro area is home to a community of diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are thankful for their presence to make our city in Oregon a beautifully vibrant place.
