A colleague of mine shared this video <https://youtu.be/IAXYEDUM9Co>. It is

*Multnomah County is sited upon the ancestral homelands of the Multnomah,
Mollala, Kathlamet, Chinook, Clackamas, Tualatin Kalapuya and many other
Indigenous Nations. Land acknowledgements recognize and respect the

homelands. The effects of colonization can still be felt today and land
acknowledgements are a small step down the path of repair, reconciliation
and cultural revitalization.*
