Access Suquamish Tribal Archives & Collections by Appointment
Suquamish Tribal members can gain access to the collection for research and to view objects. Please call ahead to arrange to see an object in the collection. Photograph, oral history, and manuscript access can usually be satisfied the day of the visit. Copies can be made available of photographs, oral history, and manuscripts. Generally at no cost, unless the reproduction needs to be sent out and then the charge will cover costs only.
Non-Suquamish Researchers are encouraged to speak with Archivist/Curator Lydia Sigo about the Suquamish collection. Project documentation and permission requirements for access to materials are required. Research requests are approved by the Suquamish Museum Board of Directors. The Board meets once a month and may request to speak with the researcher before granting access.
The Suquamish Archives, some dating back thousands of years, have been relocated to a state-of-the-art storage room within the new Suquamish Museum. The new climate-controlled storage, lined with specialty and compact shelving units, ensures the stability and preservation of the Suquamish Tribal heritage.
