We are the Lhaq'temish, The Lummi People.
We are the original inhabitants of Washington's northernmost coast and southern British Columbia.
For thousands of years, we worked, struggled and celebrated life on the shores and waters of Puget Sound.
We are fishers, hunters, gatherers, and harvesters of nature's abundance.
We envision our homeland as a place where we enjoy an abundant, safe, and healthy life in mind, body, society, environment, space, time and spirituality;
where all are encouraged to succeed and none are left behind.
