“The history of our people echoes over the coasts, rivers, and mountains of our homeland. We are the descendants of the Snohomish, Snoqualimie, Skykomish and other allied tribes and bands united by land, culture, and tradition.”
Our oral teachings and traditions tell us that we have always been here. Since the beginning of time, we have lived in harmony on our ancestral lands and waters— as fishermen and hunters, as traders, as neighbors— and we still do today. It is our responsibility to make sure that our culture is a vital component of everyday life for our people.

The teachings of our ancestors show us how to be in the world. They remind us of our values, bind us together, and teach us how our actions and attitudes shape our world. They are more than instructions on what we should do, they tell us who we are.
