North Seattle College Land Acknowledgment Statement

Submitted to President Dr. Warren Brown, faculty, staff, students and administration

January 9, 2019

On behalf of North Seattle College, we acknowledge that we occupy the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish Tribe—a people that are still here, continuing to honor and bring to light their ancient heritage. Without them, 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.
