The tribe lives along several inlets of southern Puget Sound.submitted by: Mason Kaye, 9 July 2004
The Squaxin Island Tribe language belongs to the Salishan family of Native American languages. The tribe moved onto their reservation in modern-day Mason County, Washington in 1855. The Squaxin Island Tribe was one of the first Native American tribes in the U.S. to enter into the Self Governance Demonstration Project with the federal government."
