Friends of the San Juans respectfully honors that this beautiful place we strive to protect and restore in comprised of the ancestral lands, waters, and tangible and intangible resources of the Lummi, Saanich, S’klallam, and other Coast Salish peoples. We honor the salmon, the orca, and all of the plants and creatures that make the islands and the Salish Sea unique and significant. We have much to learn from the Tribes who have cared for and stewarded the San Juan Islands and the Salish Sea since time immemorial—and continue to do so. We honor the inherent treaty rights passed down from generation to generation. Our community shares the responsibility of upholding Treaty rights entered into by the leaders of sovereign nations, including the United States.
