The Learning Right Relations community actively works to uplift and support our Coast Salish neighbors through a variety of ongoing projects.
Learning Right Relations has aided local Tribes hosting Canoe Journeys through volunteering before and during the event, fundraising and contributing blankets designed by Native artists for giveaways. We are currently fundraising for the Lummi Nation Blanket Project, in support of Paddle to Lummi 2019. Click the link above to find out more about this project.
Acknowledgement of Tribal Territories
Learning Right Relations members worked with the Squaxin Island Tribe to create a formal acknowledgment and corresponding maps of Tribal lands in the Olympia area. LRR is currently working to develop acknowledgement signs to be distributed for use at peoples’ homes, businesses or churches.
Since Time Immemorial
Our Since Time Immemorial (STI) work group works to ensure that this exciting curriculum on Tribal Sovereignty, mandated in 2015 by Governor Inslee, is being taught in K-12 schools across Washington State.
Addressing the egregious Doctrine of Discovery
Learning Right Relations members are advocating for the reversal of the damaging 15th Century papal decrees, which promoted the colonization and exploitation of non-Christian land and the resulting oppression and genocide of Indigenous peoples.
