September 30th, 6-7 pm PT

Live on Zoom




ETS fosters healing with person-centered homeless outreach services and substance use treatment that are deeply rooted in community justice and health equity. Join us to celebrate the growing strength of our community!



Brian Cladoosby (Swinomish) is a nationally renowned leader and powerful advocate for Indian Country. In 2018, during Brian’s more than twenty-year tenure as chairman, the Swinomish tribe opened the Didgwalic Wellness Center, an integrated care facility that provides substance use and mental health services to all enrolled tribal members. Through Brian’s personal story and experience as a tribal leader, he will share his deep  understanding of addiction and why it takes two generations to break the cycle.

Brian is the former president of the Association of Washington Tribes and served as the 21st president of the National Congress of American Indians. He is also former president of the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians. Brian served on the Department of Health and Human Services Secretary’s Tribal Advisory Committee and was a board advisor of the Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute. He served as an executive board member of the Washington Gaming Association, and co-speaker of the Coast Salish Gathering, consisting of British Columbia First Nations and Western Washington Tribes. Brian currently sits on the Group Health Foundation board.
