Native Americans

The greater Kitsap Peninsula is home to three Native American Tribes; the Suquamish, the Port Gamble S'Kallam, and the Skokomish.

New Chief Seattle Grave site in Suquamish
The Port Madison reservation, home of the Suquamish Tribe, is approximately 500 acres and located in the Suquamish/Indianola area with a patchwork of lands held in trust by the Federal Government for individuals, families, and/or the Tribal Government and fee lands owned by Indians and non-Indians.

The Port Gamble S'Klallam reservation is located in Little Boston, between Kingston and Hansville. It consists of 1,340 acres held in trust by the Federal Government. There is no private land ownership on the reservation.

The Skokomish reservation, 5,000 acres, is located at the southern end of the Peninsula, on Hood Canal, near Union and on the Olympic Peninsula.

Today all three tribes operate casinos and other local enterprises, including seafood processing, fish hatcheries, fireworks stands, gas station/convenience stores and more.

Many of the local tribal celebrations are open to the public to participate or watch including Chief Seattle Days, the third weekend of August in Suquamish. Check our Calendar of Events, or the tribal web pages for more information.
