Native American - Alaska Native Heritage Month
CEJS respectfully acknowledges that it is located on the traditional land of the Duwamish and Coast Salish peoples.
In honor of Native American and Alaska Native Heritage month, we would like to take the time to acknowledge the activist and leadership role this community has continually demonstrated in fighting for environmental justice issues and rights. We can see examples of this leadership in our own backyard with their continued efforts to clean up and restore the Duwamish River. Nationally, we see time and time again this community leading efforts to protect their environmental rights and the rights of the environment.
