Samish Language Program

Language directly connects Samish citizens to their families, cultural concepts, history, and place in an authentic and timeless way.

Mission & Goals

The mission of the Xws7ámeshqen Program is to revitalize and sustain the worldview that connects us to our land, our ancestors, and our unique identity as Samish people by developing a cadre of young language revitalization professionals who will serve as staff for the future expansion of the language program.
