Honoring the First People

We honor the indigenous sx̌ʷəbabs (Swub Áhbsh) people and acknowledge the fact that Vashon and Maury Islands are within the area where the sx̌ʷəbabs have built homes, buried their relatives, told stories, celebrated, fought battles, made art and medicine, and lived in unity with the natural world since time immemorial. These lands on which we now live are the traditional lands of the sx̌ʷəbabs and remain a vital part of their cultural sovereignty to the present day.
