Indigenous People’s Day

We join in celebrating the first Presidential proclamation recognizing October 11th as Indigenous Peoples’ Day.  We honor the rich histories, traditions, and cultures of the many Native tribes throughout Western Washington and our nation.  Food Lifeline’s Hunger Solution Center is located on the traditional land of the Duwamish Tribe. Let us be reminded of the Duwamish Tribe and their deep connection to local food: As the first people of this area, the tribe fished, foraged, and cultivated crops near the Duwamish River. As we continue our movement to feed our neighbors facing hunger, we acknowledge, with gratitude, their enduring care for our land and waterways.
