The Muckleshoot name and Tribe represents our Duwamish and Upper Puyallup ancestors — who moved from Puget Sound, including what is now the Seattle waterfront, to our reservation on the Muckleshoot Prairie.

We are Duwamish, Skopamish, Smulkamish, Stkamish, Tkwakwamish, and Yilalkoamish.

Our leaders signed the Treaty of Medicine Creek and the Treaty of Point Elliott to ensure that our rights to this land remain.

For more than 164 years, we’ve fought to uphold our sovereignty and heritage.

Our identity, our legacy, and our treaty rights are unique to our name and Tribe, and ours alone. We are Muckleshoot.
