, meaning “place of clear salt water” in the Lushootseed language, has been home to the Suquamish people since time immemorial. It is the ancient place on Agate Passage, the site of Old-Man-House village. The winter home of Chief Seattle and the heart of the Suquamish People. It is here, past, present and future; that the Suquamish People live on the land of their ancestors and of their great-grandchildren.
