Friends of the San Juans respectfully honors that this beautiful place we strive to protect and restore comprises 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 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.

San Juan County is at the center of existing and proposed fossil fuel export projects. We have much to lose and nothing to gain. Our community needs to stay informed, get involved, and be part of the public process of understanding the approaching changes which will affect us all.
