Tribal Government and Snoqualmie Casino Provide 450 Hams

SNOQUALMIE, WA— This holiday season, the Snoqualmie Tribe is working with organizations in the Snoqualmie Valley and wider Puget Sound region to distribute hams to Elders, Veterans and families that might otherwise go without.

Among the organizations that received hams from the Snoqualmie Tribe are:

Snoqualmie Falls, and surrounding lands, are sacred to the Snoqualmie People. We have lived in the area since time immemorial, and we follow the teachings of our ancestors to take care of our people, community and the surrounding Valley.

Recently, we’ve heard that the city of Snoqualmie suggested the tribe opposes the Riverwalk project. This is not true.
