Tribal-Native American History

For thousands of years before European exploration charted the waters of Puget Sound, several large communities of native people inhabited this area. Local tribes include Suquamish and Port Gamble S'Klallam.

On the shores of Agate Pass in Suquamish is a small site called Old Man House Park. Just a few miles from this site -- at St. Peter's Mission -- is the great Chief's gravesite. It sits on a hillside overlooking Puget Sound and the city which now bears his name -- Seattle Chief. For more information about the Suquamish Tribe, visit their new museum.
