Sauk-Suiattle Culture and History

As a complement to our Whulshootseed language information, we would like to share our collection of indexed links about the Sauk-Suiattle people and various aspects of their society. The emphasis of these pages is on American Indians as a living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Sauk-Suiattle history is interesting and important, but the Sauk-Suiattles are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern authors as well as traditional folklore, contemporary artwork as well as museum pieces, and the issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
