Cultural Resources links all generations within the community to allow S’Klallam cultural knowledge, traditions, and language to thrive and be part of our lives. The department shares cultural perspective and teachings with the Tribal community, departments, and off-Reservation entities as an educational tool to build allies, support, and understanding of our rich and vibrant culture.
They also work to increase community engagement and public recognition, while improving networking opportunities to increase collaborative efforts to build upon cultural strengths.
