Eight Peninsula Tribes, Olympic National Park Sign Pact

“The partnerships that are being built both in this process and in our work regarding removal of the Elwha dams and bringing the salmon back has been gratifying,” said Frances Charles, chairman of the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe. “It will continue to be important that we be informed when there are camps or artifacts found. Protecting all the resources on these lands and doing no harm is a joint concern. We’re grateful that the details of the government-to-government relationship make this partnership work and it will evolve as we listen to one another and move forward.”
