Jamestown S'Klallam Tribal Library: Coast Salish Culture

S'Klallam Culture

For ten thousand years, a Nation of people lived and prospered on the lands now known as the Olympic Peninsula in the State of Washington.  These strong people of the S'Klallam Tribes had a system of governance, engaged in commerce, managed natural and human resources, and exercised power over their homelands.  The S'Klallams created a rich culture of art, song, spirituality, traditional knowledge and social structure.  The S'Klallam culture promoted leadership, self-sufficiency, self reliance, and a code of conduct within their community that served as a basis for strength, pride and survival.  This was a Nation, a government and a community...
independent and interdependent.
It still is.
