To Our Theatre
WHO WE ARE
Skyhawk Theatre was established in the fall of 1999 as a portion of the newest school in the Beaverton School District. Now entering the 22nd year, our Tradition of Excellence endures through our productions and classes provided. ACT WELL YOUR PART - THERE ALL THE HONOR LIES. Join us for our performances, and our events. Discover what establishes the SKYHAWK TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE.
NOTE: We have endured Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, we continued to offer Skyhawk Theatre in a variety of forms from Podcasts to livestreams. We remained. We are here. While we did not accomplish as much as we desired or hope, we continued our tradition of excellence. Thank you for standing by us for the year. With the current upward trend in Covid cases nationwide, we hope to see you in person this season, as we present our season of Chaos - Mirth and Mayhem ( a theme which could not be more fitting at this time).
We would like to acknowledge that Southridge High School, the home of Skyhawk Theatre, rests on the traditional village sites of the Tualatin Kalapuya.
We thank the ancestors of the Kalapuya for being the original stewards and protectors of these lands since time immemorial, and for passing on their lifeways through future generations. We acknowledge that the Portland Metro area has the 9th largest Urban Native American population in the U.S. with over 380 federally recognized Tribes represented. We also acknowledge the systemic policies of genocide, relocation, and assimilation of Oregon tribes, including the Oregon Indian Termination Act, that still impact many Indigenous/Native American families today.
We are honored by the collective work of many Native Nations, leaders and families who demonstrate resilience, resistance, revitalization, healing and creativity. We are honored to be guests upon these lands. Thank you, and thanks also to our colleagues at the Portland State University Indigenous Nations Studies Program for crafting this acknowledgment.
