Shaking the Tree acknowledges that we are on the traditional ancestral land of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Tualatin, Bands of Chinook including the Watlala, The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde including the Molalla and the Kalapuya, and many other tribes who made their homes along the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. We respect & honor these tribes & the land itself. This acknowledgement does not take the place of authentic relationships with Indigenous communities, but serves as a step in honoring the communities themselves & the land that we are on. Furthermore, we acknowledge that in 1859, Oregon was the only state to be set up as a white utopia, and explicitly forbade Black people from living within its colonialist determined borders. We acknowledge we reside on / with this history of this land.We welcome all races to gather freely at Shaking the Tree, as a way to work towards dismantling Oregon’s overtly racist policies.
We offer free tickets & free rentals for Indigenous individuals & groups. To request free tickets or a free rental, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Shaking the Tree is open to dialogues to continue to find ways that we can support & highlight Indigenous communities in authentic & non-colonial ways. If you wish to have dialogue with us, please contact us at email@example.com. If you are interested in further information & supporting the tribes directly, visit the following links:
