Land & Enslaved People’s Acknowledgment –
Public Hospital District #2, Snohomish County (the Verdant Health Commission), acknowledges the original Indigenous inhabitants of this area. We recognize that we live and work on the ancestral homelands and traditional territories of Indigenous peoples who have been here since time immemorial. We honor their sacred spiritual connection with the land and water of our District.
We also recognize that many enslaved and contracted peoples were forced to dedicate their work to the construction of what is now South Snohomish County and the surrounding area. For these peoples and their descendants, we recognize their indelible mark in the space in which we will gather for this work.
Finally, in recognizing that this land is colonized Indigenous territory that has been designated through slaves and hired labor, it is our collective responsibility to critically interrogate the stories and later lives of these events, and to honor, protect and sustain this land.
