Squaxin Island Tribe
Squaxin Island Tribe, host of the annual Sa Heh Wa Mish Days Pow Wow (aka Little Creek Pow Wow) is a Coast Salish Community whose ancestral territory includes the entire seven inlet/watersheds of South Puget Sound. We are a diverse and proud people. Our unity as a tribe goes beyond geography. Once we were many communities with a similar language. Following our confinement on the island, we once again dispersed. We are a returning people, returning to our land, returning to our culture. Our long memories, our ingenious adaptiveness and our confidence in knowing who we are have led to our continuing existence.
