Language Program


Sauk-Suiattle language

saʔqʷəbixʷ-suyaƛ̓̀̀ʔbixʷ dxʷləšucid

The mission of the Language Program of Cultural Resources Department is to immerse participants in the language that they can use in their daily lives. Classes are intended to be fun and educational.

*No prior knowledge of Lushootseed is required.*

There will be many breaks throughout the classes, to help you relax and rest your mind.

A good thing to know at this time is how to wash hands! (you can control the ticker by clicking on the dots below).


As a small sovereign nation of American Indians, the Sauk-Suiattle Indian Tribe shares the belief of all our tribal nations,
that the Earth is our Mother and that the Creator resides beyond the skies and within our own beings.
While we strive to protect our Mother Earth, so does she shelter us in so many ways from harm.
