I am a modern day Coast Salish woman. I am from a small Northwest tribe (Tulalip!) which is made of several former tribes which inhabited a large area of the Puget Sound in Washington State and forced by the government back in 1856 to live on a small reservation. I was born and raised into my beautiful culture. I am ecclectic, I believe in love, I am a wife to the most beautiful man on earth, 3 quirky and lovable kids, and I adore my cat Lola. I love to spend time with my family doing modern and traditional crafts. I love to sing, write music, and really do anything creative. I also have a deep faith in God.
Coast Salish Life
Sorry for the swamp of photos today, I get tired of the stereo types of what a real, modern day indian looks like. I hope my blog shows people that we are still here, we are traditional, we are modern, we are individual… and actually my own indian life is different than everyone elses because we can not be formed into a box. I love the old photos and I love pow wow photos… LOVE THEM, but I also want to have coast salish people represented :) if you search the tags for salish and coast salish there isn’t a lot of stuff. Should you follow me you will get an idea that each native person is unique, with our simularites. In my native community we may not agree with everyone all the time, but we value and see each persons worth in the community.
I am Coast Salish. My culture is rich. I hope you enjoy a look into my life.
