"The Samish Indian Nation is committed to serving as a leader against global climate change to create a better community for our next seven generations. The Tribe's Department of Natural Resources has seen the impact of climate change first hand. We've watched as the increasing acidification of the Salish Sea has had an impact on everything that lives in or relies on the sea to survive. The sea levels continue to rise around our region. Native sea life like the J-Pod of Orcas, with whom we share a deep connection, are suffering from declining salmon populations. All of this adds up to a sad picture for our future generations.
We believe that I-1631 is the best chance our state has to be a global leader to start to address some of these issues. The Samish Indian Nation Tribal Council is proud to give our full support and endorsement to the initiative."
