The Vashon Remembrance Project seeks to: (1) memorialize through interactive art and reflection historically marginalized peoples, heroes of social justice and civil rights, and individuals who have lost their lives to tyranny, and (2) develop and share educational materials on historically accurate and under-learned events to combat forgetting.

The Vashon Remembrance Project would like to acknowledge that Vashon-Maury Island is the ancestral land of the sx̌ʷəbabs Coast Salish Native People, the first people of Vashon Island. This land was their home long before Euro-American voyagers and settlers came and displaced them. This is their traditional home and their historical relationship with the land continues today. We honor the island itself and the sx̌ʷəbabs people past and present.
Thank you for remembering.
