Northwest Washington’s tribal communities have long recognized the importance of water and water-based resources in sustaining life in this region. Come explore how the sea and the rivers, and the wealth of resources in them--the salmon, whales, tule, and shellfish--are important to the region’s tribes and the work they are doing to protect those resources for future generations. Curated by Shannon Kopelva and Jennifer Ott.
