Seattle-Limbe Sister City Association is a nonprofit citizen diplomacy network creating and strengthening partnerships between Seattle, USA and Limbe, Cameroon. Our ultimate goal is to increase global cooperation at the municipal level, promote cultural understanding, and stimulate economic development through our philanthropy.
We acknowledge the lands that we live and work on are the stolen lands of the Coast
Salish people, including the Duwamish. They are the original peoples in this space
that we call home. Many Coast Salish still live on their unceded aboriginal territory,
which includes the towns now called Seattle, Burien, Tukwila, Renton, and Redmond.
Prior to the coming of the white colonizers, the Coast Salish people lived in villages in
the foothills, along the rivers, creeks, prairies and islands of what is now called the
Puget Sound. They extended their hands in friendship and assisted many who were
seeking refuge and a better life in the west. In return, the U.S. government
encouraged the colonizers to push the indigenous peoples out of their ancestral
lands, abuse and even murder them to claim this land for themselves. We
acknowledge that we have inherited that legacy and stand in solidarity with the Coast
Salish people who still fight for their rights as indigenous people today.
