Oregon Tech resides on the ancestral homelands and traditional territory of the Klamath, Modoc, and Yahooskin Nations who have stewarded this land since time immemorial.
Oregon Tech's Portland-Metro campus resides on the ancestral and contemporary home of the Clackamas, Kathlamet, Multnomah, the Tualatin Kalapuya People, Tumwater, and the Watlala bands of the Chinook, who have stewarded this land since time immemorial.
We also respectfully acknowledge the many tribes and bands of the Klamath Basin region, the many Indigenous nations and lands along the Columbia, and the continued sovereignty of the nine tribes of Oregon and Northern Californian tribes that have ties to this land. It is important to acknowledge the ancestors of this place and to recognize that we are all here because of the sacrifices forced upon them. We also respectfully acknowledge the many Indigenous nations, bands, and tribes' lands along the Columbia River. In doing so, we hope to honor their legacy and lives, as well as continue to build relationships with the Native peoples of this region, the state of Oregon, and across the United States.
