• We recognize that Atfalati Ridge Elementary School is located on the traditional lands of the Atfalati Kalapuya, the indigenous people of this place.

    According to Kalapuya tradition, the people were created here, and they have lived here since time immemorial. Indigenous people still live here today, having persevered through war, displacement, genocide, and oppression. We humbly honor the ancestors of the indigenous peoples for being the original stewards and protectors of this land.
