Cultural Resources

The Squaxin Island Tribe affirms its commitment to preserve and protect the cultural resources that are irreplaceable and endangered. This trust includes the management of ancient and contemporary cultural use sites and resources that are fundamental to traditional life ways, values and histories of our people.

The Cultural Resources Department is a part of the Squaxin Island Tribe government and is not a part of the Museum Library and Research Center.

The Cultural Resource Department is assigned regulatory and cultural obligations and works to protect what are known as tribal cultural sites, traditional cultural properties, archaeological sites and historical (pioneer era) sites.
