LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We at Bethany Community church acknowledge that we gather today on the ancestral lands of the Duwamish People of Seattle (Dxʷdəwʔabš “people of the inside” ) and of the Coast Salish people, a people who are still here. We express our respect and gratitude for our indigenous siblings, their Elders, and for their past, present, and future care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.

THE DUWAMISH TRIBE & BCC

In 2016, at Bethany's 100 year anniversary, we as a church examined our beginnings and realized our historical connection with the Duwamish Tribe. We later began to engage in a more intentional conversation around race and justice and were challenged to do more. Pastor Phil Maulding and several lay leaders made it a priority to seek reconciliation and relationship with the Duwamish People. Bethany Community Church is honored to partner with and learn from the Duwamish.
