In honor of Indigenous Peoples’ Day on October 11th, the Unemployment Law Project wishes to acknowledge and commemorate the many indigenous peoples native to the land now known as Washington State and all over the world. We celebrate the histories of communities that lived here from time immemorial and honor the fact that we operate on native land. We celebrate members of the Chehalis, Chinook, Colville, Cowlitz, Duwamish, Hoh, Jamestown S’Klallam, Kalispel, Kikiallus, Lower Elwha Klallam, Lummi, Makah, Marietta Band of Nooksack, Muckleshoot, Nisqually, Nooksack, Port Gamble S’Klallam, Puyallup, Quileute, Samish, Sauk-Suiattle, Shoalwater Bay, Skokomish, Snohomish, Snoqualmie, Snoqualmoo, Spokane, Squaxin, Steilacoom, Stillaguamish, Suquamish, Swinomish, Tulalip, Upper Skagit, and Yakama Tribes, Communities, and Nations, in addition to the countless other peoples who lived on this land before us. The Unemployment Law Project strives to continuously improve our ability to serve these communities with zealous and compassionate representation.
