Greeting from Our Chairman

Welcome to the Squaxin Island Tribe’s website!

Squaxin’s are a strong, intelligent, and compassionate people who have lived and stewarded the lands of South Puget Sound since time immemorial. As the original inhabitants of the seven inlets, we truly are the “People of the Water.” Water is our lifeline and is sacred to us. We ask for your help in protecting our natural resources, especially our beloved Salish Sea.

I hope you enjoy learning about our people on this site . . . our history, what we have overcome, and who we are today.

We are a proud sovereign nation with our own government structures, laws, court system, and constitution. Education, employment, healthy living, and community are important to us while maintaining our culture, traditions, and proud history.
