EchoX acknowledges that we live, work and gather on Indigenous land.
EchoX home office is based in the traditional territory of our Lushootseed speaking Coast Salish relatives, the Duwamish (dxʷdəwʔabš), in land that touches the shared ancestral waters of the Suquamish (dxʷsəq̓ʷəb), Tulalip (dxʷliləp), and Muckleshoot (bǝqǝlšuɫ) nations. We honor these shared lands and waters with gratitude and give thanks to the many Indigenous communities who have been caretakers of the greater Pacific Northwest region since time immemorial.
Seattle, the location of our home office, named after Chief Si’ahl is rich in ethnic and cultural diversity. It has a layered history long before colonization back to Indigenous communities which have been here since time immemorial. EchoX recognizes our Coast Salish relatives as the original and current caregivers of these ancestral lands and waters. Beyond that we recognize the territories and respect the sovereignty of Indigenous people across the Pacific Northwest where we do our work. Our responsibility is to remember our shared histories, our obligations made through treaties, and align our actions with the seven generations in mind. We want our community to learn from the past and recognize each other’s present so that we can live together and forge a more sustainable future.
