The Whatcom Museum is offering free admission to Indigenous Peoples in honor of Northwest Treaty Day on Sat., Jan. 22. Free admission is upon request at the attendant desks inside the Lightcatcher building, 250 Flora Street or Old City Hall, 121 Prospect Street. Treaty Day honors the history of the signing of the Treaty of Point Elliott in 1855.
The Whatcom Museum acknowledges that we gather on the traditional territory of the Lhaq’temish – Lummi People – and the Nuxwsá7aq – Nooksack People – who have lived in the Coast Salish region from time immemorial. The Museum honors our relationship with all of our Coast Salish neighbors and our shared responsibilities to their homeland where we all reside today.
