Sacred Sea: for a living Salish Sea
Since time immemorial, Lhaqtemish (the Lummi people) have lived in balance with Xwullemy (the Salish Sea bioregion). We have worked to protect this place, our sovereignty, treaty rights, sacred ground, heritage economies and traditional lifeways. Our Salish Sea Campaign is focused on the health of salmon, qwe ‘lhol mechen (orca), and the waters. The Salish Sea is our sacred sea, and it is our Xa Xalh Xechnging (sacred obligation) to help heal and revitalize it.
Hy’shqe (thank you) for making Netse Mot: One Mind for Xw’ullemy on September 27 such a success.
An estimated 400 people came out on a chilly Friday afternoon to support Indigenous leadership and protection of the Salish Sea.
Please consider attending one of our events, and subscribe to our email list (button at the bottom of this page) to keep updated. Our Facebook Page regularly posts news about Sk’aliCh’elh-tenaut, qwe’lhol’mechen, salmon and the Salish Sea.

Protect and Revitalize the Salish Sea
Your tax-deductible donations will directly fund the Salish Sea Campaign of Lummi Nation's Sovereignty and Treaty Protection Office. We are working to repatriate Tokitae, advocate for our qwe 'lhol mechen, replenish salmon runs, and defend the sanctity of the Salish Sea. Your love will help spread our message. Hy’shqe!
