The homes on our virtual tours are located on traditional lands of the Lummi, Nooksack, and Coast Salish Tribes and we wish to acknowledge them as Traditional Owners. We would also like to pay our respects to their Elders, past and present, and the Elders from other communities who may be taking part in the Green Home Tours & Talks. We intend to be respectful guests and good neighbors as we recognize their culture, heritage, and sovereignty. Attendees participating from other areas may be occupying other tribal lands, depending on where they are signing in from. To find out what ancestral lands you’re occupying, visit https://native-land.ca. Acknowledgement is just the first step, and we’re inviting you to also take action by making a contribution to the Traditional Owners of your land, helping to reverse negative effects that have taken place on the land, or educating yourself and your community about native culture and history.
