In order to increase awareness of the culture and history of Coast Salish Peoples, Compass Health is engaged in an ongoing process to spotlight information regarding Indigenous communities, particularly in the regions we serve. This includes information about the history in our region such as the Point Elliott Treaty of 1855, current Tribal information and events, as well as training opportunities.
Compass Health is also working on building trust and authentic partnership with the Tribes in this region. This will likely happen in a variety of ways. As was shared with us by a member of Lummi Nation, we need to start showing up, spending time, and getting to know one another.
