Seattle Rep acknowledges that we are on the traditional land of the Coast Salish people, including the Duwamish People past and present. We honor with gratitude the land itself and the Duwamish Tribe. This acknowledgement does not take the place of authentic relationships with indigenous communities, but serves as a first step in honoring the land we are on.

In July 2021, Seattle Rep started paying Real Rent to the Duwamish Tribe as part of an ongoing anti-racism and accountability commitment.  “Real Rent” calls on people who live and work in Seattle to make “rent” payments to the Duwamish Tribe.  All of “Real Rent” goes to the non-profit Duwamish Tribal Services, run by the Duwamish Tribe, which provides social, educational, health, and cultural services for tribal members, including supporting the operations of the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center, which is a free museum, event space, and community center. Seattle Rep will pay $1855 each year in Real Rent (or $154.58/month) in recognition of the Treaty of Point Elliott, which was signed between the U.S. Government and the Duwamish (along with several other area tribes) in 1855.

Seattle Rep is starting open dialogues with local Native communities to find ways that we can support and highlight in authentic and non-colonial ways. If you would be willing to share your insight or open up a dialogue with us, please contact Nabra Nelson. If you are interested in supporting the Duwamish Tribe directly, visit

We offer free tickets for Native individuals to see our shows. To request complimentary tickets, use the contact form below.

We provide our PONCHO Forum space for free (when available) for any Native groups. If you would like to inquire about using our space please reach out to Nabra Nelson.
