Suquamish & Suquamish Tribe

Suquamish Drum & CanoeThe Suquamish are a Lushootseed (Puget Salish) speaking people that traditionally lived along the Kitsap Peninsula including Bainbridge and Blake Islands, across Puget Sound from present day Seattle. Today  Suquamish Tribal members live on the Port Madison Indian Reservation in the reservation towns of Suquamish and Indianola. 

The Suquamish people have lived along the shores of the Kitsap Peninsula for more than ten thousand years. Their name comes from the word for "clear salt water". The Suquamish ancestors thrived by harvesting salmon, clams and other natural foods. Their robust culture is rich with art, dance, song, ceremony and ritual and continues to be a major contribution to Kitsap culture and diversity. For more information about their history please visit the Suquamish Museum and Suquamish Tribe website.
