About Sauk-Suiattle Indian Tribe

Sauk-Suiattle, or Sah-Ku-Me-Hu, is a Native American tribe in western Washington state in the United States. The tribe originally lived along the banks of the Sauk, Suiattle, Cascade, Stillaguamish, and Skagit Rivers. The Sauk-Suiattle Indian Reservation is in this area, centered near Darrington, Washington. It lies in two non-contiguous sections: the largest is in southern Skagit County, comprising 73.5 percent of the reservation's total land area and all of its resident population of 45 persons (2000 census); the smaller section, in northern Snohomish County, has a land area of 12.1 _acres (4.9 hectares) and had no resident population.
