The Cascadia Department of Bioregion recognizes that the Cascadia bioregion exists on traditional ceded, and unceded lands of first nation and indigenous inhabitants who have lived here for thousands of years, as well as a deep context of colonialism, displacement and genocide. The Department of Bioregion feels that Cascadia, and bioregionalism, offer the best chance for real decolonization – including a removal of colonial borders and boundaries towards ones that are more representative of the land and people, and a pathway of indigenization for the 15 million people living here for healthier, more livable communities & bioregion. We are excited to invite the participation of, partner with and support first nations and indigenous organizers in building systems that are more just, and our collective futures.
