On behalf of North Seattle College, we acknowledge that we occupy the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish Tribe, who continue to honor and bring to light their ancient heritage. We take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here. 

We are proud to present student work from the 2018-19 academic year.
