Exsqueeze me? Baking Soda?

Spotted in Washington Park in Portland, I found this statue while hiking to the Rose Garden.  It seemed strange to me.  Who put this statue up?  Because out of all the places I’ve been to, Portland is one of the whitest (don’t worry, Bend, you’re still number one).  So I’m wondering, did Native Americans put this statue up before they were all kicked out or killed off?  Or did a bunch of whiteys put it up to show empathy about their invasion of Oregon? Can anyone enlighten me here?

Yes, that DOES say "Coming of the White Man"
