About Samish

The Samish Indian Nation is governed by a seven member Tribal Council elected to oversee the welfare and resources of the Tribe; its constitution, economic development, policies, legislation, enrollment, and justice. A General Council, all voting age members, maintains active participation in both the governance responsibilities and cultural gatherings of the Tribe. Today the leaders of the Tribe move both in the traditional Samish ways and use the tools of the modern day world. The Tribe offers to its members a wide variety of opportunities such as:

The Samish work with state and federal agencies on several grants to protect the environment and preserve natural and cultural resources, as well as creating a sound economic base for our tribe and each individual family. The Samish are strong and committed people. We are committed to reestablishing our homelands, strengthening our tribal culture, demonstrating traditional stewardship of cultural and natural resources, and being a contributing force in the economic base of our region. In short, the Tribe is continuing in the ways of their ancestors, carrying forth the values and visions of a strong Samish Indian Nation.

Yoga


One full hour led by a certified yoga instructor to get you up, moving, and connecting breath and body. This class is for all levels of persons offering modifications and 'advanced' options. Jacqueline has been teaching yoga for five years with various types to fit all bodies. Recommended for class: yoga mat or towel that won't slip, strap/neck tie/long sock, yoga block/stack of small books that won't fall over/small box that won't collapse. None of these items are required but may make some adjustments easier (or harder if that is what you are looking for). This class is open to all Samish citizens and programs. Due to the physical nature of this group, it is encouraged that your cameras remain ON so that Jacqueline may be able to give proper guidance and assist in any adjustments. Participants will need to complete a waiver before participating so please be sure to contact Jacqueline as soon as possible if you are wanting to participate.
