The ONE Center is on the long journey toward decolonizing our relationship to the land, its peoples and cultures, true history, plants, and wildlife. Recognizing our history is the first step.We acknowledge the land on which we reside, farm and work is the ancestral and current home of many Salish coastal peoples, including the Squaxin, Nisqually, Cowlitz, Chehalis and other nations.
