Olympic Peninsula Native American People

The Olympic Peninsula is home to many tribes of native people, including the Quinault , Hoh, Quileute, Makah, Elwha Klallam and Jamestown S'Klallam. From culinary influence, native art, traditional song, dance and festivals, there are many ways to experience our wonderful native cultures.

Each Tribal community offers places and/or activities for respectful visitors.

The Makah Museum in Neah Bay is a world-class cultural center, with many objects of Makah art available in the gift shop. There are demonstrations of carving and basket making nearly every day.

In late winter and spring in La Push watch the migrating gray whales from your room at the resort or join in traditional song with the Wednesday night drumming group.

Take a tour of the symbolic totems in Blyn near Seven Cedars Casino and their carving room tour.
