"We acknowledge the land on which we occupy today as the traditional and ancestral home of the Coast Salish peoples. More specifically the Muckleshoot and Duwamish, under the Point Elliot Treaty; the Puyallup under the Medicine Creek Treaty of 1954, who made their homes in this area South King and Pierce Counties. This land is the home of 29 federally recognized tribes we need to learn the past, understand present and look toward the future of (and for) the original people of these lands.
These lands are resourceful to the people that provides food, shelter, and spiritual connection. We are visitors and shall respect and honor the original people and land. Today the tribal groups are present and demonstrate resiliency and strength that would be greatly admired by their ancestors."
