We, the Port Gamble S’Klallam and the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribes, of the Point No Point Treaty Area, recognize the responsibility and need to protect and advance the treaty reserved hunting, fishing and gathering rights of our Tribes. We further recognize that our inherent traditional and cultural rights constitute vital and irreplaceable resources for our future. These resources are essential for the social, cultural and economic self-sufficiency and well being of our Tribal communities. We believe that in unity and mutual respect we can best accomplish our community goals, not only for the benefit of Indian people, but for all people.
