The National Day of Prayer for the Protection of Native American Sacred Places is honored in the middle of June around the solstice throughout Indian Country.
Our annual observance will be held this year at 5:30am, June 18 in the lower parking lot. We hope to see you at the Falls.
The Tribe’s longstanding battle with Puget Sound Energy (PSE) and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) throughout the late 1980s and 1990s and the early 2000s resulted in greater amounts of water granted in the FERC license to flow over the Falls in the months of May and June. Water from our Sacred Snoqualmie Falls is diverted by PSE to produce and sell electricity. The trickle you normally see when visiting the Falls today is due to the unnatural diversion of water before it can complete its sacred cycle and become the legendary mist when it hits the plunge pool below, transforming and raising our prayers and delivering healing and blessings.
