The Ashland City Council and Mayor, on behalf of the citizens of Ashland, have proclaimed October 10, 2022, Indigenous Peoples’ Day
in the City of Ashland. The Council and Mayor recognize that the Indigenous Peoples of the lands (later known as the Americas) have lived on these lands since time Immemorial. They honor the fact that the community of Ashland is built upon the traditional homelands of the Takelma, Shasta and Klamath Basin Peoples and affirms the legal right of the nine federally recognized tribal nations in the State of Oregon and all Indigenous Peoples everywhere.
Residents, businesses, organizations and public institutions are encouraged to acknowledge, honor, value and celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ historic and current contributions locally and beyond, while also recognizing the ongoing and interconnected struggles of all Indigenous communities locally and beyond.
