Tribal Land Acknowledgment

The Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office and the Governor’s Salmon Recovery Office acknowledge the ancestral and contemporary lands called home by Indian tribes and nations1 from time immemorial. We recognize tribal sovereignty and that this place and the region of the Pacific Northwest hold spiritual, cultural, and personal significance for Indian tribes and nations. This acknowledgment is an expression of gratitude for the historic and ongoing self-determination of the tribes to be stewards for these lands, waters, natural resources, and many creatures including salmon that we are so privileged to enjoy here. The salmon recovery community is committed to honoring the role of Indian tribes and nations as it works collectively to recover salmon.
