Scion Staffing recognizes that our office, located in the Austin, Texas area resides on the traditional village sites of the Coahuiltecan, Tonkawa, and Comanche tribes as well as many other tribes who have made their homes in the land currently known as Texas.
Indigenous people of these tribes have tended the land, created tribal communities, and called this area their home for over the past 16,000 years. The state of Texas is home to a rich history of indigenous tribes, which has been unfortunately marred from the interactions between the tribes and European settlers. Many indigenous people that remain from these tribes live in Texas and Oklahoma.
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 Austin, Texas 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 Texas a beautifully vibrant place.
