Learn with and from Samish

On this site you can find information and resources about Samish so that you feel comfortable and confident teaching about us in a respectful and appropriate way. Please reach out to the Education Department if you have any questions or concerns. We are your partners in learning and teaching!
We are working with our culture department to create usable curricula for teachers who want to incorporate local, place-based knowledge into their teachings about Indigenous people of Washington State. We expect this will complement the Since Time Immemorial curriculum.

As traditional Samish territory is located in the heart of the Salish Sea, this work will be especially relevant and helpful for teachers in: Anacortes, Burlington-Edison, Lopez Island, Oak Harbor, Orcas Island, San Juan Island, and Shaw Island school districts. Teachers in other school districts in the Northwest Educational Service District 189 may also benefit from this work, as their local tribes may share similar traditions.
