Mount Rainier is Native Land

Mount Rainier

{Mount Rainier National Park originally posted by @mountrainiernps} As I was doing research on Takhoma, or Mount Rainier, it became clear that this place has an incredibly rich indigenous story, one almost completely invisible to visitors to the park. It is impossible to capture in a single image the diversity of languages and cultures that used the resources and lived on the land that is now Mount Rainier National Park and even the five tribes mentioned in the image are far more diverse than the a single name can express. And if you are part of a Native community I didn’t mention that has claims to this or have more information about it’s history, please comment and share. Taken from the indigenous people in the exceptionally unjust Treaty of Medicine Creek, when you visit Mount Rainier, remember this is Native Land. #publiclandisnativeland
