It is important to acknowledge the ancestors of this place and recognize that we are here because of the sacrifices forced upon them. In remembering these communities, we honor their legacy, their lives, and their descendents -- past, present, and future.
Where Portland stands today are the historic homelands of several bands of Chinook-speaking people (including many Multnomah, Clackamas, and Watlata/Cascade villages). There were also Kalapuya (Tualatin villages) nearby and the Molalla people in the Willamette Valley. Today, their descendants are primarily members of the Grand Ronde and Siletz Confederated Tribes, with Chinook and other tribal relations at Warm Springs, Yakama, and the Chinook Nation.
In the reconstruction of this institution, let us acknowledge that it was founded upon exclusion and erasures of many indigenous peoples, including those on whose land we are standing upon today. This acknowledgement demonstrates a commitment from Lincoln High School to work to dismantle the ongoing legacies and ideologies of settler colonialism.
For those students who did not purchase a yearbook in the fall we have a waitlist. Seniors will get top priority to purchase on the waitlist and other students will be contacted if there are still more available. To add your name to the waitlistplease go here.
One of the most destructive parts of hate is its tendency to fill up an entire space. Part of our resistance is to refuse to let hate darken every corner. We need to acknowledge the accomplishments of our students and staff who deserve to be celebrated.
