In connection with UUC’s desire to learn, support and be in relationship with the Duwamish tribe, the original people on the land we now occupy, UUC’s Social Justice Steering Committee is planning a visit and ecotour at the Duwamish Longhouse and Museum on Saturday, December 11. 

If you’d like to join, plan to meet the group at the Duwamish Longhouse in West Seattle at 12:20 p.m. The visit will include a 90-minute ecotour (duwamishtribe.org/ecotours), which will explore the history and cultural significance of the land and water to the Duwamish. Additionally, we’ll tour the Longhouse and Log Cabin Museum, including the new exhibit, Spirit Returns 2.0. Most of us will plan to depart at around 3:30 p.m.

We welcome members and friends of all ages to join this special event, although attendees must be vaccinated and wear a mask. Among our learnings, this experience should deepen our understanding of the historical and current experience of the Duwamish, and how we can best co-exist with the Duwamish on their ancestral lands.

Please register for this event through UUC Connect and/or call Dave Mentz at 206-709-8200. Be sure to work your way through all the registration screens and click “register” to ensure you’ve completed the process. If you’d like to join the Duwamish visit but need a ride, please call Dave, ideally by Friday evening.
