Seattle's Host Tribe

Look at Seattle Through a Muckleshoot Lens

In today’s city, we still see our ancestral homeland. Its bustling downtown waterfront holds links to our heritage. The mountains and valleys echo with the ancient beat of our drums. 

This is where our ancestors celebrated the return of the salmon. This is where we hunted, gathered, fished, and foraged. This is where we welcomed our neighbors — and still do. 

The Muckleshoot Indian Tribe invites you to take a look at the Seattle region through our eyes, and learn about how we continue to protect the legacy and culture of our Duwamish ancestors.

Our Seattle Heritage Runs Deep. We are Muckleshoot.
