The EERC acknowledges the Coast Salish peoples of this land, the land which touches the shared waters of all tribes and bands within the Duwamish, Puyallup, Suquamish, Tulalip and Muckleshoot nations. We ask for those visiting Saint Edward State Park to reflect on the reverence for all things with which native peoples have occupied these ancestral homelands since time immemorial.
