Scion Staffing recognizes that our office, located in the Los Angeles area resides on the traditional village sites of the Chumash, Ventureno, Gabrielo, Fernandeno, and Tongva tribes as well as many other tribes who have made their homes next to the Pacific Ocean and in the area of Los Angeles, California.
Indigenous people of these tribes have tended the land, created tribal communities, and called this area their home for over the past 10,000 years. California is home to nearly 500 indigenous tribes and the Los Angeles area is home to a rich Native historical culture that is still very much felt around the area, with 14 federally recognized California tribes.
As a company that thrives on, and is committed to a foundation of diversity, equity, and inclusion, it is imperative that we recognize our city of Los Angeles, California is home to a community of diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are thankful for their presence to make our city in California a beautifully vibrant place.
