NISQUALLY INDIAN TRIBE AND CITY OF LACEY TO SIGN HISTORIC ACCORD
LACEY, WA, February 26, 2014: The Nisqually Indian Tribe and City of Lacey will gather for a signing ceremony of a historic Accord. The signing ceremony will be held on Tuesday, March 4, 2014, beginning at 11:30 a.m. at the Nisqually Tribe Council Chambers, 4820 She-Nah-Num Drive SE in Olympia.
The Accord acknowledges the historical ties between the two communities in areas of environmental and resource stewardship, education, economic sustainability, community service, and cultural and historical preservation. The Accord also calls for the Councils of the Nisqually Indian Tribe and City of Lacey to meet annually to identify common goals and mutual interests benefiting both Tribal members and residents of Lacey.
“The Nisqually Indian Tribe and the City of Lacey are neighbors,” stated Cynthia Iyall, Chair of the Nisqually Indian Tribe. “This agreement builds upon an existing relationship—strengthening the ties between our two communities.” Andy Ryder, Lacey Mayor, agreed, stating that “Our City is not so much defined by boundaries on a map, but by the relationships we build with the partners in our community. Together we can accomplish great things.”
