Port Madison

The Port Madison Indian Reservation is one of two Indian reservations in northeastern Kitsap County. The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe resides on their reservation near Kingston. They were great fishermen and depended on the sea for most of their livelihood. The Port Gamble S’Klallam descend from one of many S’Klallam bands who lived in villages and camps in rivers, coves and bays from Port Ludlow to beyond Port Angeles. Today there are three S’Klallam bands: the Lower Elwha band, the Port Gamble band and the Jamestown band. They are all members of the greater S’Klallam Nation today, as it was long ago.

For more information, call the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribal Center at 297-2646, or stop by the center at 31912 Little Boston Road NE, Kingston, WA 98346.
