Bainbridge: Gateway to Suquamish

  • Jan 23, 2008 at 12:00AM updated Jun 9, 2008 at 1:54PM

Cultural projects will transform the tribal community just across the bridge. At the Suquamish Tribe’s early learning center, the past is always within reach. In the yard, toddlers play in a dugout canoe they helped build and had ceremonially blessed. They make traditional drums with their fathers and sing songs in the Lushootseed language. The halls that connect the classrooms and quiet nurseries are lined with black and white portraits of ancestors and Suquamish families. “These little children are learning to sing songs in our language, they are learning words in our language, and they are doing things that bring out the spirit of knowing who they are,” tribal elder Marilyn Wandrey said. “It’s important they have those things that belong to them. Our culture belongs to them.”

The coating was too thin to bury grass blades or make branches droop, and the property’s primary residents – deer, raccoons, river otters and the various other creatures that roam the property – went about their business as usual. But for Executive Director Dick Brown, the snow, though relatively rare, plays a role akin to icing on a cake, appointing to already sweet surroundings an additional layer of delectability. “It’s absolutely spectacular when it snows here,” Brown said. “I’ll charge the batteries on my camera just at the thought that we might see a few inches.”
