Land & Waters Acknowledgment

The UWB & CC Campus Library occupies Land that has been inhabited by Indigenous peoples-- specifically, Sammamish people and their relations-- Since Time Immemorial. This campus is located on property arbitrated in the 1855 Treaty of Point Elliott, by which settler colonists coerced Coast Salish-speaking people to reservations and tribal leaders preserved their peoples’ fishing, gathering, and hunting rights. "There are many creative ways to take restorative measures and even to give [L]and back, such as by returning U.S. national parks to the appropriate tribes" (Sobo, Lambert, & Lambert; 2021). Today, descendants of the Sammamish people are members of several thriving Indigenous communities along the Salish Sea. I honor these communities, their elders, the Land itself, and the shared Waters it touches.

Sobo, E., Lambert, M., & Lambert, V. (2021, October 7). Land acknowledgments meant to honor Indigenous people too often do the opposite – erasing American Indians and sanitizing history instead. The Conversation.
