A Supportive Environment

Published: November 2, 2016, Author: AngelSupport

On October 12, the Seattle School Board unanimously approved a resolution calling for the federal government to extend treaty rights and benefits to the Duwamish tribe. The resolution states that the school board’s approval would contribute to “a supportive environment for Native education in Seattle Public Schools.”

With state-mandated education on Native American history now part of the public schools curricula, it appears that education is a beneficial pathway. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, herself a resident of Seattle, has a once-in-a-lifetime chance to leave a legacy to the Emerald City.
