Learning Right Relations

Learning Right Relations
Solidarity with Tribes of the South Salish Sea

Learning Right Relations (LRR) is a series of classes, auxiliary meetings and visits to Tribal sites aimed at addressing the historic marginalization and ongoing inequities of our Coast Salish neighbors.

The project was co-founded in the autumn of 2015 by Douglas Mackey and Pat Rasmussen–each with more than 30 years of collaborative work with several Tribes–as classes offered by the Adult Ed Committee of the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Learning Right Relations has become an interfaith action group that meets monthly and is involved year-round in activities that support the following:

VISION
The Indians of the Medicine Creek Treaty, their Coast Salish neighbors and all Indians living in our region experience respect, honor and support for their way of life.

MISSION
We walk a path of learning and living to address the historic marginalization and ongoing inequities experienced by our Coast Salish neighbors; and we share the responsibility to care for this place, their homelands, where we mutually abide.

The greater interfaith community of South Puget Sound is invited to join the continuing search for appropriate expressions of right relationships with the original people of the Salish Sea. During three 3-hour gatherings the class will meet with members of the Nisqually, Puyallup and Squaxin Island Tribes to come to know the path of right relations and to nurture the growing interest of non-tribal people in becoming involved with the Tribes in useful ways.
