At Oregon State University, what began as a grassroots effort developed into the 10th Associated Students of OSU (ASOSU) Congress passing JB10.32, a bill to acknowledge the indigenous land that Oregon State University resides upon. The passing of this bill amended the ASOSU Statutes so that ASOSU events will begin with a land acknowledgment, and for the ASOSU website to include the acknowledgment for any other student or organization to use. For more information, read "ASOSU passes land acknowledgment bill" by Haley Daarstad, News Contributor, The Daily Barometer Nov 18, 2019.
Let it be acknowledged that Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon is located within the traditional homelands of the Mary's River or Ampinefu Band of Kalapuya. Following the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855 (Kalapuya etc. Treaty), Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to reservations in Western Oregon. Today, living descendants of these people are a part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon (https://www.grandronde.org) and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians (https://ctsi.nsn.us).
