We Will Build a Better Future, Together
We honor those who came before us. In the Coast Salish tradition we raise our hands to our elders and ancestors, who showed us the way. Because of them, we have access to the cultural wisdom and expertise needed to galvanize resilient, community centered approaches to address challenges and build collective power. We undertake this work while acknowledging the historical and intergenerational trauma in our organizations and communities. Our approach is resilient and strengths based, recognizing that culture and tradition are the practice-based evidence models that will heal the impacts of historical trauma in Native communities.
