We are honored to live and gather on the ancestral homelands of the Coast Salish peoples, in what is called Seattle, WA. We take this opportunity to express our gratitude and to thank the original and current stewards of this land.
Pearl Jam is committed to addressing issues of homelessness, systemic racism, historic inaccuracies and the other issues impacting the health and well-being of all first inhabitants. Acknowledging whose land we sit on is a step in honoring the original occupants of this place and also reminds us of their experiences and our responsibility to take meaningful action.
