Seattle Colleges Land & Labor Acknowledgement
On behalf of the Seattle Colleges, we acknowledge that we occupy the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish, Muckleshoot, Tulalip, Snoqualmie and Suquamish —a people that are still here, continuing to honor and bring to light their ancient heritage.
Without them/us, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space.
We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land who are still here.
Today, we honor the survival, the adaptations, the forced assimilation, and the resilience and creativity of Native peoples – past, present, and future.
We encourage participants to consider their responsibilities to the people and land, both here and elsewhere, and to stand in solidarity with Native, Indigenous, and First Nations People, and their sovereignty, cultural heritage, and lives.
We recognize that enslaved and indentured peoples were forced into unpaid and underpaid labor in the construction of this country, state and city.
To the people who contributed this immeasurable work and their descendants, we acknowledge our/their indelible mark on the space in which we gather today.
It is our collective responsibility to critically interrogate these histories, to repair harm, and to honor, protect, and sustain this land.
