The Squaxin Island Tribe has a rich culture deeply rooted in the marine environment that we have called home for many thousands of years. We hope you enjoy this small glimpse of who we are as a people. Once again we welcome you and we are honored by your presence.

“The delicacies offered from the Heart of the Earth (the sea), such as clams, oysters and salmon, have always been highly respected by our people. The aquatic creatures that sustain us and give us life offer much more than mere physical nourishment; they provide spiritual sustenance as well.” – Squaxin Island Heritage Committee
