Land Acknowledgement

  • We acknowledge that we occupy the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish Peoples*, in particular the Tulalip, Snohomish, Stillaguamish, and Sauk-Suiattle Tribes. We see you, respect your right to sovereignty and self-determination, and are committed to being better listeners, learners, and in lifting indigenous voices.

    * Coast Salish is a group of ethnically and linguistically related Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast, living in British Columbia, Canada and Washington and Oregon. The Coast Salish are a large, loose grouping of many tribes with numerous distinct cultures and languages. Coast Salish territory spans from the northern limit of the Salish Sea (a.k.a. Strait of Georgia) on the inside of Vancouver Island and covers most of southern Vancouver Island, all of the Lower Mainland and most of Puget Sound and the Olympic Peninsula (except for territories of now-extinct Chemakum people).
