โ€œMaybe we each are only able to do something small, but if all of us do something small, together we can accomplish something great.

– Vidal Rojas, Tacoma community leader

Our festival and most of its activities happen on traditional lands of the Puyallup people, who live here and speak the Lushootseed language. We lift our hands to them and honor their elders and their continued protection of the Salish Sea.
