Mission Statement

The Cowlitz Indian Tribe ("CIT"), in conjunction with ilani, is proud to host the first annual Senior Symposium. This event will provide presentations, information, resources, entertainment, and support to help our elders through their journeys.

Description

The legacy of an ancient people in southwest Washington is rich with descendants who manage a growing portfolio of health, education, scientific research, housing, transportation, development, elder care, conservation and legal issues. The Cowlitz Tribe is a growing force in community building in what are now Clark, Cowlitz, Lewis and parts of Pierce, Skamania and Wahkiakum Counties, a vast territory occupied by numerous Cowlitz villages prior to non-Cowlitz exploration and seizure. Today, an elected Tribal Council is composed of professionals adept at managing multiple programs and projects.
