About Us

The Muckleshoot Tribe is part of the widespread Coast Salish culture that has long called the Puget Sound Region home. The Muckleshoots and their ancestors have lived in the area continuously for thousands of years. Prior to their forced relocation to the Muckleshoot Indian Reservation,a result of the government treaty of the 1850’s,the Tribes homeland encompassed a vast area ranging from Mount Rainier to the salt waters of Puget Sound.
As with their Coast Salish neighbors, the salmon plays a central role in the economic, social, spiritual and ceremonial life of the Muckleshoot people. In recent years the Tribe has been at the forefront of efforts to protect endangered salmon runs, elk herds, and other natural resources. Education is also a top priority. The Muckleshoot Tribal School and the Muckleshoot Tribal College, along with a wide array of related programs, help to ensure that todays Muckleshoot youth will be well prepared to guide the Tribe when it is their turn to lead.
The Tribe is also striving to preserve its ancient culture and language. A few years ago, it was feared that the last of the Tribes native speakers would soon pass from this Earth. However, thanks to the dedicated efforts of its educators and Tribal Elders, the voices of the children can once again be heard speaking Wuhlshootseed, which for a millennia was the primary language of Puget Sound. The Muckleshoot Indian Reservation, consisting of 3,860 acres,is located about 30 miles southeast of Seattle. A nine member elected Tribal Council provides governance for the Tribe. With over 200 Tribal Government employees and a gaming employment work force of over 2,200, todays the tribe is South King County’s #2 employer and a growing economic force in the region.
