Our Way...

We are the first people of the Salish Sea, and our values and teachings guide us in the seven generation of decision making that upholds our balance for a prosperous, safe and healthy way of life.


The Coast Salish ancestral homelands, Salish Sea and people continue to face detrimental damages to the environment and resources based on the pollution based economy, and we will continue to move on co-management and co-decision making on the Salish Sea and Biome. Our agenda for the 2017 Gathering is to discuss:

  • Aboriginal and Treaty Rights at Risk
  • Resource and Environmental Challenges
  • Laws, Policy and Regulation
  • Coast Salish 21st Century Nations and Tribes
  • Federal, State and Tribal Dispute Resolution
  • Decision making, uniform consent
