We honor and acknowledge the land on which we work.

The Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities sponsors the Data Equity Fellowship and is located on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish, Stillaguamish, and Coast Salish peoples who have lived in these territories from time immemorial, and are still here today.

We extend our honor, respect, and gratitude to them, and to their elders and descendants—past and present—in continuing to enrich our lives through sharing their wisdom in allowing us to gather on their traditional lands.
