Supporters of the Snoqualmie Tribe’s Save the Snoqualmie Falls initiative, launched in response to the city’s Tokul roundabout and its implications for future development of land near Snoqualmie Falls,  gathered with protest signs and team T-shirts at the City Council meeting on Monday, Oct. 12, to make sure their message was heard.

Snoqualmie Tribal Council alternate Melynda Davis spoke on behalf of the tribe during the citizens comment period.

“Mr. Mayor and the members of the city of Snoqualmie council, you are not listening,” she said. “We are asking you to please listen to us, please do your due diligence as it is your responsibility as elected officials. Don’t rubber stamp plans to build homes over sacred land. Don’t dismiss the thousands of voices as you have done so far.”

Davis also gave the city council copies of the more than 1,000 signatures acquired through the Save the Snoqualmie Falls campaign.

“Our message tonight is clear, we are still here to protect our sacred Snoqualmie Falls and the lands around it. Help us to protect sacred Snoqualmie Falls for all people, for all time,” Davis said.
