Sacred Sea: for a living Salish Sea is the website, social media, and communications arm for the Salish Sea Campaign that was started by Lummi Nation’s  Sovereignty and Treaty Protection Office and, since that Office’s closure, is continuing through the Lummi-led non-profit Sacred Lands Conservancy. Our mission is to preserve, protect, and promote Lummi sovereignty, treaty rights, and schelangen by defending and revitalizing Xw’ullemy (Salish Sea bioregion) waters.
