The City of Port Townsend, Washington stands on the site of qatáy, the “capital” of the S’Klallam Tribe in 1855 when the Treaty of Point-No-Point was signed. In 2021, the 150th anniversary of the government-sanctioned burning of the village in 1871, the Port Townsend community and the S’Klallam Tribes continue to build partnerships and work collaboratively on projects that help us not only acknowledge and understand our history but to answer the important questions, “How Can I be an Ally?” and “Where do we go from here?” 

This panel will discuss the čičməhán Trail project, “Since Time Immemorial” curriculum, Tribal Canoe Journey landings, and the impact that recent archaeological discoveries have made in Port Townsend. While acknowledging there is much work left to be done, we hope to use these projects as examples of how to engage with your community and foster positive change, education, and respect.
