Reconnect with voices from the Summit to further explore Tribal treaty rights and the legal relationship between Tribes and state and local governments. Warren King George, Historian for the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe Preservation Department, will share his perspective on protecting and integrating Tribal cultural legacy, traditional knowledge, and cultural resources into contemporary project decision making. Joe Hovenkotter, Tribal Liaison for King County’s Department of Natural Resources and Parks, will share his perspective on working with Tribes, government agencies, and other institutions to ensure Tribal treaty rights are respected. John Brosnan, with King County Stormwater Services, will also provide some context and connections between stormwater management and what we learn. The session will include a moderated Q&A session with Warren and Joe.
Warren King George collects and records oral history from Tribal and Community members and works with government agencies, museums, colleges, and private parties to ensure Tribal treaty rights and Tribal cultural resources are protected and preserved. Warren will speak about the culture and lifeways of ancestors, contemporary members, and future descendants of the Muckleshoot Tribe.
