Coast Salish Gathering concludes

On the final day of the Coast Salish Gathering, tribal leaders communicated some renewed goals, including:

  • Define co-management in the Coast Salish language, so the tribes may come together to understand the sacred trust and shared decision making in their own words.
  • Explore litigation for Coast Salish to transition into their rightful place as shared decision makers.
  • Explore political strategies and determine congressional next steps.
  • Explore science and traditional ecological knowledge needs of the Salish Sea.
  • Develop an educational component for the Coast Salish Gathering for the benefit of the next generation.
