Statement on Indigenous People’s Day
October 12, 2020
Happy Indigenous People's Day! Today we recognize the contributions of indigenous people in our country and we honor their historical roots to the land we are on.
The county seat, where Superior Court resides, is in Olympia, which is on the land of the people of Steh-Chass of the Squaxin Island Tribe, the People of the Water.
Our court systems need representation from the tribes of WA, as judges, to provide an understanding ear to indigenous people and their unique experiences.

March 17, 2003 - The Seattle Times, "Call Ups Come With Complications"
"Amamilo had already voluntarily served a six-month tour of duty that ended last summer. This time around, she hoped for a delay in her call-up orders so she could take her final exams and graduate. The Army said no.
University officials are trying to see if there is some way she can complete her courses while on active duty. But it is unclear what is possible, and Amamilo fears that when she returns to civilian life she will have to redo her final semester of college at an estimated cost of $8,000.
'I love my country, and I will go anywhere to protect it ... ,' Amamilo said. 'I just want a little more time to report.'
'But I know the drill. My duffel is packed and by the door.'
Amamilo is scheduled to leave for Fort Dix tomorrow."
