Honoring those who came before us and served as traditional stewards of the land is vital to acknowledging the long-standing history of Southwest Washington. This area is home to the Cowlitz Indian Tribe and has been for thousands of years. The land enabled the Cowlitz People to flourish with its rich resources. Today we must appreciate the persistence of the Cowlitz People and the important role they play in our region.
