Indigenous Peoples' Day

October 14, 2019 - 09:30am to 04:00pm

The Oregon Zoo is extending free admission to all American Indian/Alaska Natives for Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

To access free admission on this day, show proof of tribal affiliation or descendent status.

Free admission will be offered for up to four family members per card/form of identification.

We should never forget that the land here at the zoo, indeed this entire area of the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette rivers, is the traditional homeland and fishing and gathering range of tribes throughout the region. Its wealth of resources sustained Indigenous people who lived here both year-round and seasonally. These tribes have honored, protected, and stewarded these resources for thousands of years and continue to do so today. We honor with gratitude the land itself and the peoples who have cared for it since time immemorial. This calls us to commit to continuing to learn how to be better stewards of the land we all call home.
